When someone dies with assets (money and/or property) in their own name, the court must oversee the passing of those assets to the deceased person’s heirs and ensure resolution of debts. Sometimes a formal administration (full) is required, depending upon the value of the assets, and in that case, a personal representative must be appointed. Other times a summary administration (abbreviated) is appropriate, and the process is slightly simpler.
Only an attorney familiar with this area of law can properly guide you in the right direction.
