UNDERSTANDING JACKSONVILLE ESTATE ADMINISTRATION
Jacksonville estate administration refers to administering and closing your loved one’s estate. An estate can consist of many different types of assets. The estate administrator is responsible for identifying and organizing the assets, making sure debts are paid, and distributing assets to beneficiaries.
Probate is part of the estate administration process of transferring assets after death. A judge’s approval and court orders are needed to pass a decedent’s assets. While some types of estate assets must go through probate, other types do not have to. In that situation, there is still an estate administration process to make sure the assets get transferred the way the decedent wanted.
The estate administrator in Florida will have to do many of the same things required in a probate proceeding:
- Organizing assets
- Notifying beneficiaries
- Giving creditors notice and a chance to file a claim
- Paying the decedent’s unpaid debts
- Preparing an inventory of assets
- Filing tax returns
- Distributing assets to the intended beneficiaries
