Ancillary Administration in California
Los Angeles Trust Administration Lawyer
In many circumstances, the contents of an individual's estate are actually much greater than what was expected by the trustee and beneficiaries. The decedent may have a large estate plan with wills and trusts throughout the country and even the world. These documents may bring to light assets, creditors and beneficiaries that were previously unknown. Ancillary administration is the handling of a decedent's assets which are in another state. At the Law Offices of David A. Shapiro, P.C., our skill and experience can help you handle all ancillary administration and probate matters.

Ancillary administration is necessary because real estate must be probated in the state which it exists. There may be a probate proceeding that is administered in the home state of the person who has died. If the estate does not have many assets or issues, our firm can file a small estate declaration. No matter what size of your case, however, we can deal with the ancillary administration. We have extensive experience with ancillary probate administration and can act on behalf of the out-of-state family. We can also handle the non-domiciliary administration in California with the trust administration attorney who is dealing with the domiciliary probate in the decedent's home state.
