Trust administration

If your loved one had a trust, (also known as a “living trust”,) a process known as trust administration must be performed. In most instances, trust administration does not involve the courts. The process of trust administration is primarily focused on following the predetermined requirements for distributing your loved ones wealth. The process typically takes about four months, and usually no more than one year to complete.

Following initiation of the trust administration process, we will focus primarily on following the asset distribution requirements as they are written in the trust documents. We will work to ensure the process is completed efficiently and legally, in accordance with the written requirements of the trustor. 

When a loved one who is a trustor, becomes incapacitator or is in any way prevented from handling their own affairs, someone may be deemed as a successor trustee. Similarly in this case, if you happen to become named as a successor trustee to your loved one’s trust, we can easily instate the trust administration process for you. We will assist by guiding you through the process of trust administration every step of the way, and help you to be assured that your work is correct and everything is completed in accordance with the asset distribution requirements.
