Service Description

A Small Estate Affidavit is a legal document used in certain states of the United States to transfer ownership of a deceased person’s assets to their heirs without having to go through the probate process. Probate is the legal process through which a court determines the validity of a deceased person’s will, identifies and values their assets, pays their debts, and distributes their remaining assets to their heirs.

In states where Small Estate Affidavits are accepted, this document can be used instead of probate for estates that meet certain requirements. These requirements vary from state to state, but typically include:

– The total value of the estate is below a certain threshold (usually around $50,000 to $150,000)
– There is no real estate involved in the estate
– There are no disputes or contests over the validity of the deceased person’s will

If these requirements are met, the Small Estate Affidavit can be completed by the deceased person’s heirs and submitted to the appropriate authorities, such as the county clerk or probate court. The affidavit typically includes information about the deceased person, their heirs, and the value of their assets.

Once the Small Estate Affidavit is approved, the deceased person’s assets can be transferred to their heirs without the need for probate. This can save time and money, as probate can be a lengthy and expensive process.

It’s important to note that Small Estate Affidavits are not available in all states, and the requirements and procedures for using them can vary. Additionally, there may be other legal considerations to keep in mind when transferring ownership of a deceased person’s assets, such as taxes or creditor claims.

If you’re considering using a Small Estate Affidavit, it’s recommended that you consult with an attorney to make sure you understand the legal requirements and implications.
