Small Estate Affidavit
Probate is not the means of administering the estate of a deceased individual with no trust. When an individual passes away, and the value of their estate at the date of death is worth less than $150,000, a full probate may not be necessary, in these cases a small estate affidavit may be needed to administer the estate.
This process is far less complex and time consuming than a full probate or trust administration, but still involves the court and various responsibilities for the administrator. If not properly handled, a small estate administration can become a larger ordeal, proper legal assistance can be essential. The Boutique Law Group can assist families with obtaining a small estate affidavit, and with ensuring proper administration of the estate assets, often involving closing accounts, and preparing and selling real property and vehicles.
