Personal representative refers to a person who manages the estate of a deceased person. Estate administrators are appointed within decedent's last will and testament. If no Will exists, personal representatives are appointed by a probate judge.
A personal representative usually requires legal assistance from a probate or estate planning lawyer. Estate settlement must adhere to state probate laws and involves submitting various documents to the court. Few people are prepared to undergo the process of probate alone.

Decedents can give their personal belongings, financial assets and real estate holdings to whomever they wish. Most individuals gift assets to their spouse, children or direct lineage relatives such as sisters, brothers, mother, father, nieces and nephews.

Inheritance cash advances aren't loans. There are no monthly payments to pay back. Inheritance cash advances don't have to be repaid by heirs at all. The estate repays the lender once it has been probated.
Inheritance cash advances supply money to beneficiaries of estates immediately. When a loved one dies, their estate goes into probate unless the decedent created an irrevocable living trust. The probate courts ensure the validity of the Last Will and Testament of the deceased, but the courts main purpose is to ensure creditors are paid before heirs.
