Release of Estate from Administration

If the decedent dies a resident of Greene County (or owning real estate in Greene County) and had minimal assets that need to be administered in Probate Court, then it is possible the estate qualifies for a Release of Estate from Administration proceeding, instead of a full estate administration. Please review the checklist below to determine whether or not your estate qualifies for a Release of Estate from Administration. After reviewing the checklist, if you are still not certain if the estate qualifies, please contact an attorney for assistance. The Deputy Clerks in Probate Court are prohibited by law from giving legal advice.
