When a person passes, matters of their estate must be resolved and any assets are given deceased’s beneficiaries. A descendant’s assets are usually held in a living trust. If not, they can be passed by other methods. If no method has be indicated prior to death, a probate may be necessary.

The probate court is responsible to administer all the steps of the estate administration. The cost of probate proceedings is significantly higher when there is no living trust. If there is an existing living trust, the administration of assets after death can be a very simple process.
