Experienced Estate Planning Attorneys

Estate Administration

Help from Our Williamsburg Probate Attorneys

The death of a loved one can be a difficult, complex, and emotional time, and few surviving family members want to deal with the resulting legal issues more than is necessary. However, these situations will quite likely arise, and one of the most common processes that may come up is known as estate administration. Estate administration is an attorney-managed process which allows certain assets of the deceased to be both managed and distributed to intended beneficiaries.

Certain assets may be excluded from the estate administration process. In addition to this, disputes among the heirs may arise that will need the assistance of a Virginia estate planning attorney who is well-versed in the laws and can offer compassionate legal guidance during the grieving process.

Time & Costs Associated with the Estate Administration Process

An estate administration can bring about a variety of unique challenges, and is different for every situation. Each client is unique, and every family is different.

The costs involved and duration of the process can vary significantly depending on a number of factors, including:

  • The value and complexity of the estate
  • Court and attorney fees, if applicable
  • The schedule of the probate court
  • The existence of a will
  • Other pertinent factors related to the estate

In addition to this, if an objection to the will is brought about by one of the heirs, the time and cost of the entire process could rise substantially.
