Trust administration is the process of administering a trust after a person has passed away. This process is often imposed upon you, as trustee, immediately after the death of a close friend or family member. We understand that it is often difficult to grieve a death as well as take care of the responsibilities that you have as trustee. Therefore we work diligently to help you with your obligations, within the confines of California law, as well as fulfill the wishes of your loved one. As trustee, you have a variety of duties while being held to the highest fiduciary standards. We counsel you through this complex process by helping you identify assets of the deceased, set up accurate records, follow required procedures, and fulfill on-going legal and tax obligations. Because you have a long list of responsibilities, as well as a high standard of accountability, we work hard to lessen the burden and ensure that you receive the proper advice to perform your obligations effectively. Contact the Law Offices of Cheri E. Michaelis today if you need assistance in administering the trust estate of your loved one.
