How Are Estates Probated In Michigan?

There are several ways to probate a final estate in Michigan:

  • supervised probate requires hearings before a probate judge to determine the final disposition and distribution of assets.
  • An unsupervised estate requires more limited court oversight without the need for as many hearings. A formal hearing may be necessary to finalize matters that may be in dispute.
  • Lastly, an informal unsupervised probate estate is handled completely through court filings and paperwork without the need to go to a formal hearing before a probate judge. An experienced probate lawyer will answer your questions about what type of probate procedure your family’s estate will require.
