West Chester Estate Administration And Probate Attorney
Estate administration and probate is the process that is used to settle the estate of a person who has passed away. In most cases, the deceased person will name an executor — sometimes referred to as a personal representative or administrator — in the will. It will be the executor’s responsibility to file the will with the Register of Wills and to represent the estate throughout the probate process.
Many people who are named as executors are not familiar with the duties of the job, and the process can quickly become overwhelming. In many cases, the assistance of a reliable West Chester estate administration and probate lawyer can be very helpful. At the Law Office Therese L. Money, LLC, we represent clients in all aspects of the estate administration and probate.
