Trust Administration in California
The culmination of most modern estate plans involves the administration of the trust after its creator passes away. Trust administration involves numerous steps that require thoughtful and considerate planning, as well as attention to detail. Because this tends to be a particularly sensitive time for family members who may be dealing with the loss of a loved one, we as estate planning lawyers focus on efficiently and effectively assisting our clients with legal matters so that they can focus on healing.
Although trust administration is frequently less complicated and less costly than going through probate, clients who have established trusts for family members with special needs or who wish to have ongoing trusts established for their loved ones often need the assistance of estate planning lawyers to ensure that their intent is carried out. In addition, Trustees need to be advised of their legal duties and the terms of the trust for which they are acting as Trustee to avoid liability.

When done properly, trust administration can be a smooth process that helps families close a chapter in their lives.
