Probate and Estate Administration
In the event one of your family members dies without a will, we can assist you in applying to be the administrator of his/her estate. We can also assist you in applying to be the Executor of an estate where you have been named an executor in a will. Once you have been appointed an administrator or executor of an estate we can assist you in the administration of the estate, including:
- Contacting the financial institutions to obtain the date of death values of the decedent’s assets and helping you to liquidate their assets.
- Preparing and filing the New Jersey Inheritance Tax and Estate Tax returns and the Federal Estate Tax returns.
- Preparing the final accounting, which includes a description of the assets, income, expenses and proposed final distribution of the estate.
- Preparation and filing of the Release and Refunding Bonds which need to be signed by all the heirs prior to final distribution of the estate assets.
