Estate / Finalize Probate and Close the Estate
Finalize Probate and Close the Estate
In order to do this, the Executor or Administrator will need to deliver an accounting of all payments and distributions to Probate Court for final approval.
Only after a judge approves that all obligations have been taken care of can the Estate close.
The procedures, processes and timeline that govern this process differ between states, so be sure to check state law before getting started.
