Estate Administration

After the loss of a loved one, we can work with families to help relieve some of the uncertainty and burdens they undoubtedly face. Not only do families have to emotionally grieve, prepare for final arrangements and family gatherings to celebrate the life of their deceased loved one, they must also begin to work through the probate process towards an estate settlement. Estate administration is a court-supervised process that can take many months or possibly over a year. Often, the surviving family members have little experience, if any, in working through this process. By stepping in as executor, or working alongside family members as co-executor, First Covenant Trust is able to guide from experience as a professional fiduciary for your family in a time of great need. Our fee for this service is assessed and charged as a one-time fee once the estate is settled.
