Reducing Your Stress And Advocating For Your Family’s Legacy
Several things can happen after a person passes away. If they didn’t have a will, the state of New Jersey may allow some of their assets to pass through simplified probate. This process is much faster and less expensive than the traditional probate process.
The decedent’s assets could also pass through regular probate if they alone owned those assets. The executor of the estate is responsible for creating an inventory of the deceased person’s assets, collecting valuations of their assets, using assets to pay debts and taxes and then finally distributing the remaining assets as the will dictates.
