Trust Administration

Administration of a trust is in many ways similar to probate administration except that unless the trust is created by the provisions of a will, the administration of the trust is generally not subject to court oversight or to the probate process.  However, a trustee has many responsibilities that should be reviewed at the beginning of the trust administration to ensure that all tasks and obligations are handled in a timely and appropriate manner.  Further discussion of the administration of a trust is best accomplished in a personal consultation because of the numerous personal and family-specific issues that must be discussed.
