After a person passes away, his or her property needs to be transferred to those people who are entitled to inherit said property. In Michigan, Estates and Protected Individuals Code (“EPIC”) provides fairly specific instructions relative to the manner in which a person’s property should be distributed after his or her death. The probate courts are charged with the task of ensuring that a person’s property, sometimes referred to as his or her “estate,” is handled correctly. This process is oftentimes referred to as “estate administration” or “probate administration.” The rules and guidelines surrounding estate administration can be confusing, especially to those dealing with the recent loss of a loved one. The process can be similarly confusing and frustrating for those charged with the responsibility of managing an existing trust. It is important that you work with a knowledgeable attorney who can help you shoulder some of the burden.
