Trust administration can be a complicated process that many people struggle to understand. Trust administration occurs after the death of either one or both settlors to a trust. Keep in mind that trusts are quite different from a will in that trusts can avoid probate (for additional information between a trust and a will please see this article). As a Cleveland, Ohio attorney, my clients are often mistaken that a trust will transfer assets automatically. However, it’s important to understand that practically noting, in the legal world, transfers automatically. Thus, it’s imperative to hire a qualified Ohio attorney to help aid in the process so that the estate is not distributed against the deceased wishes. There are many processes involved with the administration of a trust. For this reason, it’s important to choose someone trustworthy to manage the roles of administrator, trustee, or executor.
