Are There Alternatives To The Probate Process?
Clients frequently ask if there are any alternatives that would allow an estate to avoid the time and expense involved with a full probate process. The short answer is: “yes, maybe!” In addition to the Court issuing a Formal Determination of Heirship to identify the heirs of an estate, two other alternatives also exist:
- Small Estate Affidavit
- Affidavit of Heirship.
