If You Have Been Appointed As An Executor, You May Be Confused
As executor or trustee of an estate, you are required to distribute assets, settle with creditors and pay taxes. If the execution of an estate is not followed accordingly, you could be held responsible for any money owed. The process of execution can last six months to a year.
Brink & Bennett will guide you through the process step by step. We will provide you with details that will enable you to fulfill your duties as the executor and/or trustee in a decent time frame.
