When a loved one dies, a family member or other trusted individual must manage the final affairs of the decedent's estate. This process is called estate administration. During the process, assets will be distributed, estate debts will be paid and other administrative tasks will be completed.

Clifton Park, New York, Distribution of Assets Lawyer
Our experienced attorneys can seamlessly and effectively guide you through the probate process. We understand that as an executor or administrator, you may be unfamiliar with your responsibilities. We can guide you through the probate process and ensure all of your responsibilities are met. These responsibilities can include:
- Notifying heirs
- Gathering estate assets
- Paying estate debts
- Paying estate taxes (if applicable)
- Distributing estate assets, which can include real estate, money and other items
Prior to distribution of assets, the executor is required to inform the beneficiaries about how the assets will be distributed. An attorney from the Beebe Law Firm can prepare an accounting on the debts and potential distribution. The estate can be settled when the heirs agree with the accounting. The final step is then distributing the assets.
