Long Island Lawyer for Estate & Trust Administration
Get the Counsel of an Estate Planning Attorney
Dealing with the loss of a loved one is challenging enough without having to handle the administration of their estate. Making such arrangements only compound the challenges of this difficult time, especially if you are named – or seek to be named – the executor of the late person's estate, the administrator, or the personal representative.
As the executor, administrator or personal representative of the estate you have important responsibilities that require a level of strict attention and care that you may not be fully prepared to face on your own right now. In times like these it's beneficial to contact a Long Island estate planning lawyer for advice and legal representation to ensure your loved one's final wishes are fulfilled.
The Role of an Executor in New York
As an executor, administrator, or personal representative of an estate, a lot of important responsibilities fall on your shoulders at a time when emotions run high. You are required by the courts to identify, collect, valuate, and distribute your loved ones assets. This includes the filing of a final accounting and, in some situations, preparing estate tax returns. You may also have to address any issues with beneficiaries or creditors, or identify ways to limit tax consequences, all while attempting to avoid any personal liability. It's a difficult set of important obligations that can be tough for anyone to do alone, especially if this is a position you've never faced before.
