Ancillary Probate

If a person had property in more than one state, or dies in one state and owns property in another, then an Ancillary Probate must be done. The main probate is usually done in the state where the person resided and an Ancillary Probate is done where the property was owned.  This requires an Estate to pay for Probate costs in each state. Creating a Trust can help avoid going through this process.
