Your loved one’s last Will and Testament is authenticated in the probate process, or if there is no Will, the probate process will be used to administer the assets in the estate. A personal representative, sometimes known as an executor, will be appointed by the court to locate your loved one’s assets, determine their value, pay any final bills, and file his or her final income tax returns. The personal representative will also distribute your loved one’s assets to the appropriate beneficiaries as specified in the Will or in accordance with Maine law.
