Independent administration and Probate

Independent administration is a type of probate case that is not monitored by a judge until the end of the case. There are two types of probate administrations. The first type is called Independent administration. The executor is empowered to make financial decisions without the authorization of a judge. These decisions include selling a house, filing a lawsuit, and paying out inheritances or settling claims. The second type of administration is supervised administration. This type of administration occurs when one of the heirs at some point objects to independent administration. Typically, supervised administration is more costly because a judge must approve all financial decisions such as distributions of cash, sale of real estate, and settlement of claims.
