When a loved one passes away, his or her estate often goes through a court-managed process called probate or estate administration where the assets of the deceased are managed and distributed. If your loved-one owned his or her assets through a well drafted and properly funded living trust, it is likely that no court-managed administration is necessary. The successor trustee administers the distribution of the deceased’s assets. The length of time needed to complete the administration of an estate depends on the size and complexity of the estate and the local rules and schedule of the probate court.
