UNDERSTANDING PROBATE CASES

 

Probate cases are civil cases and can include the following case types:

Estate administration including wills and succession and abandoned and unclaimed property.

 Probate cases can sometimes become long and involved legal battles with an almost unlimited number of possible procedural variations. 

The statutes allow hearings regarding probate cases to be heard in the Judge’s chambers.  Any actions taken by a Judge in chambers while performing in a judicial capacity are as valid as those taken in open court.

 

WILL PROBATE

Anyone who has custody of a will must present that will to the District Court or the executor within thirty (30) days of notice that the testator has died.

If a will is deposited with, or delivered to, a District Court, that District Court Judge must, after the testator’s death, publicly open and examine the will.  The Judge then files it in the Court Clerk’s office or it is delivered to the Judge of the District Court that has probate jurisdiction of the will.

 

PETITION

Admitting a will to probate is initiated by filing a petition in writing with the Court Clerk.  The petition must be signed by the petitioner or attorney and must include specific facts about the case as outlined in the statutes.  The original will should accompany the petition.  If the petitioner does not have possession of the will, the Court can ask for an order requiring the person who does have the will to produce it.

 NOTICE OF HEARING

When a petition for probate of will is filed, the Court must fix a date to hear the petition, not less than 10 days and not more than 30 days from the date the petition is filed.

The Court Clerk or attorney for petitioner must mail notice to all heirs, legatees and devisees and detailed in the statutes at least ten (10) days prior to the hearing.  The attorney must then provide proof by affidavit of the notice mailing at the hearing.

A notice of the hearing must be published in  one (1) issue of a newspaper at least ten (10) days prior to the hearing and an affidavit of publication must be filed with the Court Clerk (if the name or address of any of the heirs, legatees and devisees of the testator are not known).

 

HEARING

The purpose of the hearing is to determine the validity of the will, determine the heirs, devisees, and legatees and appoint an executor or administrator of the estate.    The hearing is not meant to establish who is entitled to receive assets or property from the estate.

 The Court must ensure that testimony from the hearing is recorded.

 At the hearing the Court issues an order either admitting or refusing to admit will to probate.  The will must be recorded where the will is admitted to probate.  The Court order usually appoints a personal representative to administer the estate and specifies the amount of bond, if any, to be executed by the representative.  After the Court has approved the bond, the Court Clerk must file it.

 

LETTERS TESTAMENTARY AND LETTERS OF ADMINISTRATION

The Court must issue letters to the executor or administrator authorizing the transaction of the business of the estate.  Letters Testamentary must be prepared according to the statutes, and are issued to a person named in the will who is appointed executor.  Letters of Administration are issued to the court-appointed administrator in the case of a death intestate.  Before the Court can issue any letters, the executor or administrator must take an oath to perform the required duties according to the law (and post the bond or waiver of bond).  The oath is attached to the letters, and the Court Clerk must file all letters in the case.

 

PETITION FOR ADMINISTRATION IN DEATH INTESTATE

 The court must grant administration of a person’s estate who dies intestate (without leaving a will) to specific persons defined in the statutes.
