A natural progression from will making is the administration of your estate. This involves meeting with family members and executors to discuss the administration process, collecting details of all assets and liabilities, writing to all institutions to advise of the death and request full details of things owned and amounts owed. Based on that information, a decision must be made as to whether Probate is required. Probate is the document issued by the High Court, giving the executors official authority to deal with the assets and clear the debts.

Usually, estate administration is not a quick process and beneficiaries (those people who receive under your will) often become impatient, when they know there is money at the end of the line. So, education of the beneficiaries is part of the job.
