Small Estate Affidavit

Oregon recognizes that modest Estates can be managed and properly distributed without the additional costs and protective procedures of a full Probate process. If the Probate assets of the Estate are of limited value, a less costly, less time consuming, and a less complicated legal process called a Small Estate Affidavit is available. The current (2023) limitations in value are $200,000, or less, of real property and $75,000, or less, of personal property. A document called an affidavit is filed with the court by a “Claiming Successor,” and the Estate assets and debts are handled by the person filing the affidavit.

The Small Estate Affidavit only works if all interested parties in the Estate agree with this procedure. Any interested person of the Estate can supersede the Small Estate Affidavit by filing a Petition for “Full  General Probate.”

Larry K Gray & Associates, PC welcomes clients from within and outside the State of Oregon who needs to investigate, manage, or wind-up a deceased family member’s Estate, Family Trust, or Probate related issue within Yamhill County, Washington County, Clackamas County,  Hood River County, Wasco County, Columbia County, Clatsop County, Marion County, Polk County, or Tillamook County, in the State of Oregon. We will make efforts to accommodate and assist with the difficulties associated with handling an Estate from a long distance.
