Unsupervised Administration

Unsupervised administration permits the Personal Representative (PR) to act in a manner independent of court intervention unless supervision is requested by the PR or an interested person (such as an unpaid creditor or an estate beneficiary).  This form of administration is generally preferred unless there is a specific reason to request the court’s supervision of the estate.  In addition, because there is less court involvement, unsupervised administration offers some privacy for the decedent's family, as fewer details concerning the estate's administration will be in the court file and available for inspection by the public and the media.
