Probate Details

Probate details can make an already difficult situation feel overwhelming.

The specifics for probate accounting are crucial to probate cases and often require exact numbers; not always as straightforward or as easy as they may seem on the surface. For example, your probate documents may need to be amended if you are in a state either has a substantial increase or a substantial decrease in guidelines, taxes, or fees after you have filed your petition. Are you ready to be responsible for these probate details?

Understanding Probate

Probate code section 10810 (b) states that any material change should be brought to the attention of the court. That seems straightforward enough; but, how do you know exactly what a material change might be? Since the local custom and court discretion are often the yardstick for that measurement, some judges might define a material change as little as a few dollars difference. Other judges may define a material change as something significantly higher; for example, a change of thousands of dollars. To complicate matters, probate procedures may also depend on the total gross value of the estate.
