What is the purpose of estate administration?

When a loved one passes away, what happens to his or her assets and debts? If a will or trust has been created, there are likely to be specific instructions for beneficiaries to follow in order to take care of these things. If not, it will be up to the court to decide. Regardless, every estate in Texas or elsewhere must go through the estate administration process.
