Probate Form

A probate form is required when engaging in proceedings that take place in probate court. These include estate settlement, name changes, adoption, conservatorship, guardianship, recording or making changes to trusts, and litigation associated with probate estates.

The probate form is necessary to obtain a case number for probated estates or to record legal changes through the court. Records retained through probate court are a matter of public record and can be viewed by anyone that wants to see them. The exception to this rule is matters related to trusts

Trusts are used to safeguard estate assets and avoid probate. Within the U.S. every person's estate has to pass through probate upon death. This method is necessary to transfer property to designated beneficiaries and heirs; notify government entities of the death; clear outstanding debts owed by decedents; and file final tax returns.

Probate form refers to documents that are filed through probate court. This judicial division oversees many types of proceedings including estate settlement, intervention proceedings to establish guardianship or conservatorship, disclaimers, filing or modifying trusts, and litigation surrounding probated estates.

The type of probate form required depends on the kind of proceeding, as well as the state and county where the proceeding takes place. Probate laws are different in each state, so it's best to consult with a probate attorney to ensure appropriate forms are filed through the court.
