Trust Administration

Trust administration requires meticulous attention to detail, a comprehensive knowledge of the law and a dedication to client-service. As advisors, we at Bethel Law have the knowledge and experience to handle the administration of any estate and work with the trustees and beneficiaries to ensure a smooth administration and that nothing is missed.

upon death

If you have lost a loved one handling the final details of the estate postmortem administration can be difficult. You will be going through the emotions of losing a loved one, while trying to make decisions about paying off creditors and closing out final affairs – selling homes, closing accounts, distributing IRAs, annuities, life insurances, final tax return preparation, distributing furniture and other keepsakes, opening up a trust account with a federal tax ID number, and marshaling the assets for a proper accounting – to name a few.

Where we come in

We have experience in first and second death trust administration, including simple and complex trust administration for A-B-C, Disclaimer, and QTIP trusts; and, second death postmortem administration of simple, complex, special needs, and dynasty trusts.
