What is the executor responsible for doing during probate?

As an estate administrator, you are in charge of discovering and dealing with: potential creditors, lawsuits, debts, taxes, and notifying any medical parties of the decedent's death. After you are named the estate's executor, you must gather the deceased's personal papers and effects to determine if there are any potential creditors involved in their estate. It is also imperative you locate their checkbook to discover if any recurring payments existed. This can help you determine if they had an existing debt prior to their passing.

All credit card issuers must be contacted to ensure any payments are not due, and if so, you must use money the decedent had to make said payments. If there is not enough money to pay any debts, you may be forced to sell their estate to make all necessary payments. Every medical facility that cared for your lost loved one must also be contacted to ensure all payments were made prior to their passing. You are also held responsible for paying all necessary income and estate-tax returns.
