Trust Administration

A trust is created to help protect your assets and to avoid the transfer of assets through the probate process. The legal process of trust administration can be complicated, but it must be completed in order for the property held in the trust to transfer to the beneficiaries. We know this can be a difficult process, since you are coping with the loss of a loved one. The team at Barbara M. Pizzolato, P.A.  is here to help you through every part of the estate administration process.

It is our goal to help you and the other beneficiaries avoid serious financial consequences by properly administering the trust and meeting all obligations set forth by the law and trust creator.

What is Trust Administration?

This process is triggered by the death of a trust creator. When assets are held in trust, trust administration is necessary to manage and transfer those assets. The process varies depending on the type of trust and the requirements imposed by the law and the trust creators. Determining the appropriate steps to take requires legal knowledge and can be complicated.

Some of the steps involved may include:

  • Fulfilling statutory notice requirements
  • Paying expenses properly
  • Distributing assets to heirs as dictated by the trust
