Administering a probate estate can be a very overwhelming undertaking for appointed executors or personal representatives. Quite often, the appointed executor or personal representative is a relative or good friend of the decedent. Besides dealing with the despair of losing a cherished person, the executor or personal representative is also responsible for administering the decedent's estate in accordance with the decedent's Last Will and Testament or Tennessee law.
Your executor or personal representative has to become knowledgeable about probate administration, court rules, and procedure, and also be mindful of probable taxation issues.
