Working with a knowledgeable professional can lessen the stress on a family. Estate Settlement is a very complex legal process which requires complete adherence with state laws and county estate administration procedures.
Executors and estate trustees should be aware that settling an estate without professional guidance often leads to serious family disputes and can create personal financial liabilities if fiduciary duties are not properly addressed.
We strongly suggest that named executors and estate trustees don’t “go it alone” and recommend they talk to an estate attorney early in the process.
