What is the fiduciary responsible for in a probate case?

A fiduciary has many duties to settle a decedent’s estate, including but not limited to: assuming responsibility for the decedent’s property, paying any taxes or debts the decedent owes, collecting payments due to the estate, preserving the estate assets, distributing the estate assets to any heirs, and providing an accounting of all expenses to the court.
