What does formal probate administration involve?

Formal Probate Administration

My loved one passed away recently. How do I start the formal probate process? What deadlines do I need to be aware of? How can an attorney help with the formal probate process?

  • Formal probate administration is for estates where the decedent passed away two or less years ago or the value of the estate subject to probate is more than $75,000. 
  • Formal administration is lengthier than summary administration and involves appointment of a personal representative to gather all assets, pay debts, and distribute assets. 
  • Some assets are subject to probate, while other assets are not.
