A small estate, also known as a voluntary administration, is an estate involving less than $50,000 in personal property. Dealing with a true voluntary administration is a relatively simple process, however there are factors, such as if the decedent owned real property, and if there was a Will that can easily change a voluntary administration into a more complex proceeding. A competent probate and trust administration attorney, such as Cara Law, can determine if the estate falls under the voluntary administration guidelines, or if it should be filed as a different type of proceeding.
If there are any pending lawsuits around the decedent, such as a wrongful death case, seeking the guidance of an estate attorney is highly advised. Cara Law’s probate attorney services for trust administration, probate and small estate proceedings are very affordable. Get in touch with us today to set up your consultation.
