Review Family Allowance Compensation

Probate, the legal process that oversees payment of outstanding Estate debts and distribution of its Assets to Beneficiaries, may take time to finalize.

But often, money is needed sooner for ongoing living expenses.

To receive funds earlier, surviving family members can petition a Probate Court for an advance known as a Family Allowance.

The amount of money that is released from from the Estate is subject to state law.
