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.

It's recommended to consult with a probate lawyer or estate planner to ensure adequate protection of estate assets. However, it's helpful to conduct research to learn about the process and available options.

Probate Office

People often think the probate office is a scary place that is intimidating and overwhelming. In reality, it's simply a place where probated estates are settled and closed and last will and testaments and death certificates are recorded.

When Wills are presented to the probate office a case number is provided to the estate agent. If a person passes away without a Will, the estate is referred to as intestate and the death certificate is recorded to obtain a case number.

People often underestimate the need for writing a Will. Intestate estates can be difficult to deal with, especially while in the midst of grieving the loss of a loved one. The Will provides directives regarding who will be in charge of settling the estate and the people or organizations that are to receive estate assets.
