Is Probate Required?

Some people are surprised to learn that probate can be avoided in certain situations.

If the value of all of the deceased person’s personal property is $75,000 or less, you may be able to avoid probate and transfer the assets via a simple Affidavit. Read this article to find out more about how an Affidavit works to avoid probate for personal property.

Probate Exemption – Real Property

If the value of all of the deceased person’s real property is $100,000 or less, minus any liens or encumbrances (money owed on the property), you may not need to have a probate proceeding.
