Probate and Administration
Probate is the action taken upon an individual’s death to have the person named in the Will or to have a person appointed in the case of intestacy (no Will) to act on behalf of a decedent’s estate. Such action allows the Will to be filed with the Surrogate’s Court and a person given authority to act for the deceased person’s estate. When there is no Will an individual will apply to the Surrogate’s Court to be appointed as an Administrator of an Estate. As a result of the appointment, the individual is empowered to pay bills, distribute assets, pay inheritance or estate taxes.

Russo & Kieck are experienced estate administration attorneys in Bergen County, New Jersey.
Upon the death of an individual, someone, whether nominated in a Will or appointed upon application where no Will is present, is empowered to handle the gathering of assets, payment of liabilities and distribution of any remaining assets to the beneficiaries of the decedent.
In some instances an inheritance tax will be required to be paid. It may be paid out of the assets of the estate or a beneficiary may be required to pay their pro-rata share of the inheritance tax. This will depend on what a Will instructs or, if no Will, then what the law directs.
In some instances an estate may be required to pay New Jersey estate tax which is based upon the gross value of the assets of the estate or Federal estate tax which is also based upon the gross value of the assets of the estate.
