When you are the executor of a will and it requires you to administer the estate of a loved one who has passed away, the responsibility can be overwhelming. It is daunting to say the least and a job in and of itself. It means that you must have an intimate knowledge of the deceased person’s desires as they are spelled out in his or her will.

Being a trustee is not simple, but there is help at Weinstein & Randisi. While you are in the thick of it, they can come in and assist you with the intricate details of making sure that the beneficiaries are taken care of. You are held to a very high standard legally and not administering the will properly can bring on a lawsuit. All this is happening while you are trying to grieve the loss of a loved one.

Having a representative from Weinstein & Randisi can make all the difference. They will go over every detail of the will and the estate to ensure that you do exactly as your relative would have wanted you to do; the trusting relationship he or she had with you means so much at a time like this.

Your loved one knew you would take your fiduciary duties very seriously, and you will want a professional by your side to help you fully carry out this responsibility. You will need to be aware of the debt that must be paid by the deceased person’s estate. Determining heirs is another hurdle that must be overcome and this may take some research and time that you simply don’t have right now. The distribution of the estate’s assets and the accounting that must be ready in case the authorities get involved can be a task that you may want to leave to a skilled attorney.

Getting help at a time like this is a smart idea. While you need the time to mourn the loss of a dear loved one, we can be hard at work on your behalf making sure the will you are administering is followed carefully.
