The new paper nccourts.gov reports how estate administration is a process for handling a person’s assets and debts after that person’s death. Some estates are administered by “full administration.” Many small estates may be administered through simpler processes. Estate administration must be handled by the courts.

In full administration, the clerk of superior court gives authority to a personal representative of the decedent who inventories the decedent’s assets, gives public notice to the decedent’s creditors, pays the valid debts of the decedent, and distributes the decedent’s remaining property to the person(s) who were named as beneficiaries in the decedent’s will, if there is one, or to the person(s) entitled by law if there is no will.
