Public Guardian

The Madera County Public Administrator handles the administraton of estates of persons who die in our community when no other person or family is willing or appropriate to administer their estates. The services include searching for family, making burial arrangements, identifying assets, paying creditors of the estate, paying the expenses of administration and distribution of the balance of the estate to the decedent's heirs or beneficiaries. If a decedent has a will, the Public Administrator may also be appointed for the named Executor where the designated Executor is unwilling or unable to serve.

Referrals to the Public Administrator may be made by governmental agencies, creditors of the estate, the Probate Court, nominations by family members, or others who are unable to act in this capacity.

What Does a Public Administrator Do?

The Public Administrator (PA) investigates and may administer the estates of persons who die with no will or without an appropriate person willing or able to act as administrator.

What Are the Primary Duties of the Public Administrator?

The Public Administrator has the same duties and functions as private administrators. They are to:

  • Protect the decendent's property from waste, loss or theft.
  • Make appropriate burial arrangements.
  • Conduct thorough investigations to discover all assets.
  • Ensure that the estate is administered according to the decedent's wishes.
  • Pay decedent's bills and taxes.
  • Locate persons entitled to inherit from the estate and ensure that these individuals receive their inheritance.
