Estate Administration

Professional Estate Administration Attorney - Lawyer, providing experienced Estate Administration legal services in Lakeland, Winter Haven, Bartow, and Polk County Florida.

When an estate plan is to be administered due to incapacitation or upon your passing, the decisions and choices which have been identified in your estate plan and relevant estate documents enter into what is known as estate administration. Estate administration may include probate, probate litigation, the division and distribution of your estate property and assets, and even the further management or your estate according to your wishes.

Ideally each and every one of your wishes would be carried out according to the directions and stipulations you have set forth.  When an an estate is being contested, the estate enters into probate litigation, where any disputes relating to the estate are litigated for the purpose of legally resolving these issues.

The time allowed to contest an estate is typically 90 days after a Notice of Administration has been provided by the personal representative, or 20 days in the event that a Formal Notice of the probate proceeding is received before the will has been admitted to probate.

Once the estate has cleared the probate or probate litigation process, the administration of an estate is legally allowed to be carried out according to your wishes, and any court ordered modifications which may have been ordered in probate court. Estate administration may go beyond simply distributing the property and assets of your estate.

There may be parts of the estate which have been set to specific requirements, milestones, or other specifications. In some cases, the deceased may have identified someone they trust, typically a family member, to carry out the future implementation and administration of the estate, or they may choose to have their attorney carry out these duties and responsibilities.

Regardless of who the estate administrator is, they are bound by law to act only in the best interest of the estate's beneficiaries, and may even have their duties, responsibilities, authority and limitations be dictated in the deceased last will and testament, court orders, or other estate documentation.

We urge you to be proactive when it comes to your legal rights by seeking the legal advice and representation of an experienced estate administration attorney or lawyer as soon as possible.
