DISTRIBUTING THE ESTATE

Final distribution of an estate can be made soon after the federal estate tax return is filed (usually nine months after the date of death). When all debts and taxes have been paid and the estate is ready for final distribution, the Law Offices Of Robert L. Cohen, Inc. will prepare a final account and report based on the receipts and disbursements made by the estate. The account and report will also ask the court to order distribution of the remaining estate assets to the beneficiaries. Once the account and report are filed, the court will hear the account and report and enter judgment settling the final account and report thus authorizing the distribution of the balance of the estate assets to the heirs. The Law Offices Of Robert L. Cohen, Inc. will then help you distribute the assets and obtain the necessary receipts. This completes the probate administration.

COMMISSIONS AND FEES

If the client is appointed to administer the estate, California Probate Code §901 allows for the payment to the client of a commission for the services provided the estate. The commission is based upon the gross or total amount of estate assets. This commission is referred to as fees and are solely determined by the court at the final hearing. The fee the client receives is generally the same fee that the attorney receives. The client may either accept or waive the awarded fees for their services.

In certain situations when extraordinary services have been provided such as sales or mortgages of real or personal property; contested or litigated claims against the estate; litigation relating to property of the estate; or carrying on the decedent's business under court order; additional fees may be awarded by the court.
