Florida Trust Administration AttorneyFlorida trust administration requires meticulous attention to detail, and extensive knowledge of trusts, estate planning law, debt settlement, tax law, and in some cases Florida probate law.

The administration of trusts also requires a working knowledge of accounting and business law. The Kramer Law Firm has extensive in-house legal resources to handle these important matters.

Unlike Florida probate, trust estates are not administered under court supervision.

How We Assist Beneficiaries in Trust Administration

Beneficiaries of a trust have legal rights under Florida law and under the trust document itself. If you believe that the trustee is not handling their fiduciary duties responsibly or that your rights are not being honored, the Kramer Law Firm can help you enforce your rights in Florida courts.

Important Factors That Can Influence Orlando Trust Administration

Florida trust administration can be complicated business. A successful trustee will need to complete a list of duties including: organizing papers related to the loved one’s medical care prior to death; looking through safe deposit boxes for stocks, certificates and other important documents; retaining a Florida trust attorney to review and interpret these papers; and documenting insurance policies (e.g. automobile, life insurance, etc.) and a comprehensive list of the estate’s assets.

Questions like the following may need to be addressed:

  • The size and complexity of the decedent’s estate: Where are his or her assets located, and what is their nature? (e.g. cash and bank accounts, real estate, stocks, intellectual property, etc.)
  • Have arrangements for the memorial and funeral been handled?
  • What were the precise instructions left by the trust maker?
  • What creditor or lender claims against the estate are outstanding?
  • Did the trust include provisions for estate and tax planning? There may be potential federal and Florida estate tax liabilities.

And even that list of projects is not comprehensive.

Errors or omissions in this process can lead to disputes and trust litigation not just among beneficiaries but also between the estate and government. An experienced Orlando trust administration lawyer with the Kramer Law Firm can help you keep control of the process and ensure that it is handled as smoothly and quickly as possible.
