Estate Probate

Small Estate Probates & Voluntary Administrations

When someone dies with their Estate properly arranged before their death, the Probate process CAN be somewhat simple, depending on the size of the Estate. 

An Estate with assets greater than $50,000 should be handled by an attorney. 

However, a Small Estate or Voluntary Administration can be done by the Executor.  The paperwork is still difficult and we can help with that process.
