The Role of Executors and Administrators in State Probate Proceedings

Executors and administrators play pivotal roles in the probate process, serving as fiduciaries entrusted with the responsibility of managing the affairs of a deceased person's estate. Their duties extend beyond mere administrative tasks; they are tasked with ensuring that the deceased individual's assets are managed and distributed in accordance with their wishes as expressed in their will or as dictated by state law in the absence of a will.

The responsibilities of executors and administrators encompass a broad spectrum of tasks, each essential to the proper administration of the estate. Among these duties are filing the deceased person's will with the probate court, notifying creditors and beneficiaries of the estate, inventorying assets, settling debts and obligations of the estate, and ultimately distributing any remaining assets to the designated beneficiaries. These tasks require meticulous attention to detail and adherence to legal requirements.
