Full Probate Adminstration

If one of the Summary Administration methods will not work for you, we will need to open a full probate estate.  Missouri law requires an attorney if a full probate estate needs to be opened. A probate attorney can guide you through this process. The documents that need to be filed depends on whether a person died with or without a will.  Either way, an Application or Petition requesting that “Letters” be issued must be filed in the Probate Court.  This starts the process of Obtaining Authority from The Probate Court in order for the legal representative of the Probate Estate to act on behalf of the Probate Estate.  When filing the probate action, it must be determined if the legal representative is going to request Supervised or Independent Administration.  Although the Duties and Powers of the Legal Representative are similar whether the estate is Supervised or Independent, there are some important differences.  The last step in administering a Probate Estate is the one that thought to be one of the most important ones, Distributing the Assets (hyperlink) to the beneficiaries.
