GUIDING YOU THROUGH PROBATE
Probate refers to the process of administering a decedent’s estate, including paying all estate taxes, resolving all debts the estate owes and allocating all of the leftover assets according to the terms of the will or, if there is no valid will in place, according to probate law. Although smaller estates or some assets may not have to go through probate, in general, larger estates with substantial property will have to be processed via probate, which is overseen by probate courts and which can be an involved and complicated process.
If you have been named as the trustee of a trust, you will have a lot of responsibility in terms of overseeing that the trust is managed according to its specific terms.
Whether you have been entrusted to administer a simple or complex trust, our Bend and Lincoln City trust administration lawyers can help you:
- Figure out and abide by the terms of the trust
- Settle any debts that have been levied against the trust
- Pay any taxes associated with the trust or a related estate plan
- Develop and carry out amendments to the trust
- Allocate assets to the trust’s beneficiaries
- Keep detailed books regarding the transactions associated with the trust
