Probate is the court process that has two key components: (1) Appoints a person or entity to administer an estate of a decedent, and (2) settles disputes between parties during the administration of the estate.
The probate process in Idaho can range from easy to complicated depending on the nature of the assets and the types of disputes that arise. Most cases deal with simple assets, involve no disputes, and are settled within six to eight months. Thus, most people have nothing to worry about when it comes to the probate process here in Idaho.
The probate law here in Idaho has been updated with the uniform probate code, providing an effective and efficient probate administration process. There are no public forms for the probate process, so you will likely need to hire an attorney to help you draft the necessary paperwork to open a probate. However, because the process is relatively efficient, attorney fees for a simple estate are fairly affordable for families.
Before opening a probate case, or deciding to get involved in such a case, it is always important to speak with a probate attorney before doing anything. There are strict filling deadlines, and sometimes there are alternatives to probate that will be less expensive.
