There are some limitations to a summary probate administration. One is that it is a “one-stop-shop”. All assets, creditors, and beneficiaries must be known prior to filing the petition with the probate court. If more assets are discovered after the court has issued the order, a new probate administration needs to be opened. Therefore, if the petitioner is not organized, there could be twice the filing fees and additional attorneys’ fees.
Another limitation to a summary probate administration is that a personal representative is never appointed. If someone passed away because of a car accident and settlement paperwork needs to be signed, a formal probate administration is necessary.
