Thorough Probate And Estate Administration Services

When a person passes away, the family is left with the cumbersome task of settling the estate of the deceased. Essentially, probate and estate administration is used to formally transfer the real property, distribute assets of the decedent and settle all claims against the estate. If you were selected as the personal representative for a loved one's estate, we can guide you through every step. The probate and estate administration lawyers at Erhart & Elfelt, LLC, in Anoka are prepared to explain the process and assist you with your duties to make the process less stressful.

Guiding Anoka County And Minnesota Families Through Probate

Formal probate is not always necessary after a person passes away in Minnesota. In Minnesota, the probate process is required when survivorship rights have not been created, when real property is titled in an individual's own name or when real estate is held as a tenant in common with another. Minnesota law generally requires probate for an estate greater than $50,000.
