Nothing can prepare you for the emotional trauma of losing someone close, even if the death has been expected. Once funeral arrangements have been made, the process of estate administration and distribution of inheritances to beneficiaries has to be taken care of. Very few people know where to start and how to proceed. It becomes even more complicated in the absence of a valid will and testament.
