After death, a Will sometimes needs to be submitted for probate, particularly when financial institutions like banks or investment companies are involved. These companies typically require legal recognition from the probate registry before they can release funds to the executor/personal representative named in the Will. If there is no Will, an administrator must be appointed through the probate registry to distribute your assets and pay your debts. Asking the registrar to appoint an administrator can cost at least an extra $2,500 in legal fees.
