Small Estate Amount to Increase by $10,000


Effective October 1, 2009 the threshold for small estate proceedings  (often called Affidavit for/of Collection) under North Carolina General Statutes Section 28A-25-1 will increase to $20,000 for estates where there is no surviving spouse or he or she is not the sole heir, and $30,000 where the surviving spouse is the sole heir.
Using this procedure can avoid the cost and time involved in a full probate proceeding.
