Administering the estate of a loved one can be overwhelming and complicated. An estate administration attorney can be very helpful in preparing and filing court forms and executing the many financial transactions that are required to settle an estate. Susan Harman-Scott and her staff are expert in expeditiously administering testate and intestate estates in any North Carolina county.
Estate administration is the collection and distribution of a decedent’s property and payment of his or her debts, according to his or her will, or according to the intestate succession laws of North Carolina. Estate administration is within the jurisdiction of the Clerk of Superior Court in the county in which the decedent resided at the time of his or her death. The administration process is carried out by a personal representative of the decedent. The representative may be appointed by a will or by the Clerk if the decedent did not make a will.
Each step in the probate process is important to ensure that the assets are accounted for and approved by the Clerk. The firm is dedicated to the efficient, accurate and timely administration of both simple and complex estates.
