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:

  1. Contacting the financial institutions to obtain the date of death values of the decedent’s assets and helping you to liquidate their assets.
  2. Preparing and filing the New Jersey Inheritance Tax and Estate Tax returns and the Federal Estate Tax returns.
  3. Preparing the final accounting, which includes a description of the assets, income, expenses and proposed final distribution of the estate.
  4. 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.
