Probate

Probate is the legal process used to pass assets from the deceased to the living. This process depends on several factors such as whether the person had a will and the size of the estate. These forms and services are available for in-person consultation, via email, Skype or for download with detailed instructions.

There are different options for probate depending on the size of the estate:
 
Estate less than $20,000 and no real property
  • Transfer by Affidavit
 
Estate valued at more than $20,000 but less than $100,000
  • Set Aside without Administration
 
Estate valued at more than $100,000 but less than $200,000
  • Summary Administration
 
Estate valued at more than $200,000
