Every state offers some kind of shortcut for “small estates” which, under some state’s laws, can actually be quite large.


Depending on where the estate is handled or if a trust was established, you may be able to skip probate court altogether or use a shortened, simplified version of probate.
We recommend you seek legal counsel to establish a well-prepared estate plan in order to get the most out of your probate experience.

    This “article” is not particularly helpful. If the links to each state went directly to areas dealing with probate issues it might be. Most folks haven’t the time, experience, or inclination to wade through a states legislation to pinpoint specific information. If a blog cannot provide relative and easily accessible information, it might benefit from not posting it at all
