Trust Administration at the Death of the Grantor

Posted on: May 8th, 2014
A living trust is a legal document that, just like a will, contains your instructions for what you want to happen to your assets when you die. But, unlike a will, a living trust can avoid probate at death, control all of your assets and prevent the court from controlling your assets if you become incapacitated.  However, at the death of a Grantor (creator of the trust) a Trust Administration must be completed.  

Upon the death of a trust maker the Bryan Law Firm, PC offers legal services to your successor trustee. The trustee is responsible for seeing that the assets of the trust are distributed properly and in a timely manner. An overview of the valuable guidance we provide includes:
