Types of Estate Filings

Full Administration:  Refers to the process where a decedent's assets are collected and then properly distributed to the appropriate heirs, beneficiaries, and creditors. This process takes place through the Probate Court.

Release from Administration:  Is allowed when the assets to be transferred of the deceased's estate is below court set limits. Where there is a surviving spouse, and the assets are under $100,000, or where there is no surviving spouse and the assets are under $35,000 the court permits this shorter procedure.

Summary Release:  
There are two cases where you can apply for summary release from administration: You are the surviving spouse of the deceased person.  The value of the estate must not exceed $40,000 plus up to $5,000 in funeral expenses paid or owed by the surviving spouse. You paid for the deceased person's funeral.

Probate of Will:  is a court-supervised legal process that may be required after someone dies. Its purpose is to make sure the deceased person's debts and taxes are paid and that assets are transferred to the people who are entitled to inherit them.

PLEASE NOTE: CUT OFF TIME FOR FILING IS 3:45 P.M.
