Navigating The Personal Representation Minefield

If you were named the personal representation in a loved one’s will, you may be feeling overwhelmed by the probate administration process. As the personal representative, you have many duties — failure to fulfill these duties can expose you to personal liability.

At Walden Neitzke & Kuhary, S.C., we provide clients with as much or little support as they need to fulfill their duties as personal representative.

Our attorneys help clients’ document and secure all of the assets in the estate — including personal and real property, investment accounts, insurance policies, and retirement accounts. We help identify potential heirs, notify creditors, pay off the debts of the estate and submit the estate to probate.

If a trust is involved, we also help the personal representative establish and fund the trust according to the terms of the will and trust document. We also represent personal representatives and potential heirs during estate litigation, including will contest disputes.

Fulfilling Your Duties As Trustee

Trust administration is very similar to probate administration. As a trustee, every step you take must be done so with the beneficiaries’ best interests in mind. Failure to live up to this duty or to fulfill one of your many responsibilities as trustee can expose you to legal action.

Our lawyers can take the entire trust administration process off the trustee’s shoulders or guide clients through each stage of the process.
