We specialize in probate and estate administration. Schedule a consultation with Attorney Konstantakis for all of your Trust needs!
The person seeking to use a Small Estate Affidavit must complete a sworn statement or affidavit including information about the deceased person, an inventory of assets, an estimate of the total value of the estate, and a list of heirs.
Work with an experienced attorney to oversee your documents, submit them to probate court. If the court finds the affidavit to be valid and the estate meets the eligibility criteria, it may authorize the distribution of the assets without the need for a formal probate proceeding.
The assets can be distributed to the heirs or beneficiaries according to the laws of intestacy or any instructions provided in a will if one exists.
