Executor Expense Reimbursement in Burlington County, New Jersey

As the executor of an estate in Burlington County, NJ, your expenses incurred in handling the estate are reimbursed from the estate assets. Typical examples: filing fees, parking fees, travel fees, and money that you pay to have the estate assets secured or cleaned. 

For example, the cost of the airfare to attend your mother’s funeral would not be reimbursed. However, if you had to travel to the Burlington County Surrogate’s office to file the will, that cost can be reimbursed.

This includes mileage. The IRS issued standard mileage rates. Effective January 1, 2015, the IRS mileage allowed rate is 57.5 cents per mile.

These are guideline amounts that you may use and which the other beneficiaries can object to, but they certainly give you a starting point.

I was referred to Peter after my divorce to put documents together to protect my assets. He suggested a number of documents that would help protect my children and their future. Also, he put together wills, power of attorney and living wills. I initially spoke with him on the phone, he took 30-40 minutes to understand my situation and explain the benefits of having such documents. After a week or two, I met with him in his office and signed the documents. Everything else was remote phone calls and emails. He re-explained these documents and what whom to share. I am in good hands.

I saw four lawyers and was told by all of them; I should just forget contesting my mother's will. I knew what happened, but it is very hard to prove undue influence. I contacted the Law Offices of Peter L. Klenk & Associates. Attorney Amanda DiChello took my case. They were very honest and upfront about what would be involved trying to prove what I knew was true. Attorney DiChello may be young but she is extremely knowledgeable and skilled. She listened and understood what I conveyed to her. She knew exactly what information to use and crafted an outstanding interrogatory and many powerful depositions. Attorney DiChello understood the various emotional feelings this case created for my family and me; she was always there for us with a kind and encouraging word. We went to trial. The amount of work which she and her Paralegal did for the trial was incredible. They both knew my case inside and out! Attorney DiChello's powerful interrogative and thinking skills produced a positive outcome. Attorney DiChello did what other seasoned lawyers said was impossible!
