Unless there are instructions in the will they should be turned over to the heirs-at-law and next-of-kin. (Who would take them under the "estate" anyway.)

The dead have no legal rights. However, the estate of a deceased person acquires many of the same rights as the person had while alive. The executor or administrator of the estate carries out the final collections and payments on behalf of the estate, and should attempt to enforce all rights of the deceased (including pension and other contracts payable to the deceased, privacy, personal choice in disposal of remains, disposal of the estate assets, payment of taxes, etc).

Generally, the deceased parent's estate is responsible for the debts of the deceased. The creditors should be notified of the death. If there are any assets the estate should be probated.

You petition the court. It is a fairly straight forward form that has to be signed by all of the beneficiaries of the will or estate. You should consult a probate attorney for your jurisdiction.

They will look to the wording of the will. It should specify whether that share goes into the general estate or to the deceased named person's estate or heirs.

The estate of the deceased is liable. If you inherit any money, property or valuables these should have been used to settle the estate. If there was no estate then you will need to show this to the IRS.

Refer them to the estate of the deceased. The estate has to pay off the debts. If the estate cannot do so, they distribute as best they can. If the court approves the distribution, the debts are ended.

If there is no inheirator of the deceased's estate no one is responsible. However if you have inheireted the decease estate and accepted that then you also have to accept the debt. Payment of debt should come from the estate of the deceased. If the estate of the deceased is without sufficient resources to pay the debts and the deceased does not have joint obligation with anyone, the total of debt should be added together and the estate should be divided equally among the debts. If anything is left after paying all debts of the deceased, the remaining resources can be divided among suvivors or beneficiaries.

The creditor should be notified of the death of the debtor. The decedent's estate is responsible for the debt. If there are no assets in the estate the estate is insolvent and the creditor is out of luck. You should speak with an attorney before paying any debts that are solely in the name of the decedent.

Life Insurance and EstatesNO, not if the named beneficiary is not deceased. The proceeds of a life insurance policy belong to the named beneficiary not to the deceased. It should not under any circumstances be included in the estate of a deceased or the probate process. If no beneficiary is named or if all beneficiaries are deceased then their is no alternative. When their is no named beneficiary then the value of the life insurance policy reverts to the insured and must then be included as part of the deceased estate

In most cases the debts of the deceased, including unsecured debts, are the responsibility of the estate. The estate, or its beneficiary should reimburse any valid debtors before giving any of the assets away. If the estate has been closed, there should be no further claims.

If your grandmother is still living, you can't. If she is deceased, the executor of the will is required to notify you if you are in the will. If there is no will, and your parents are deceased, then you should contact the probate court and/or executor.

If the distribution to the beneficiary was mandatory, and the trust agreement does not provide for alternative disposition on the beneficiary's death, and/or the trust agreement provides that the distribution is mandatory and not discretionary, then the distribution should be payable to the deceased beneficiary's estate, which could get the K-1 as to any portion of the distribution that constitutes income rather than principal. The distribution to the deceased beneficiary's estate could flow through to the heirs of the deceased beneficiary's estate.

The executor must take documents demonstrating that the person is deceased and they are the executor of the estate. They should also take the title so that the sell can take place immediately. This should be done at the DMV.

A lawsuit commenced against a person can continue against his estate after his death. The attorney for the plaintiff's estate should have filed a notice in your father's estate that there is a claim against the estate.

There should be no need for a subpoena. You should be able to show your Letter of Authorization from the court that appoints you executor of the estate. That should be enough to establish your right to the records.
