Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
I am afraid that in order to change titles of vehicles or deeds on real estate
, you must open probate on the estate. You can file a small estate affidavit in MO Probate Court to satisfy this requirement if the entire value of his estate is under $40,000 and you file the small estate affidavit with the will copy and fee of about $65 (See: Small Estate Affidavit
). This small estate probate would be all you need, if you qualify based on total value of the estate, to get both titles changed. If your husband's estate does exceed $40,000 total, I am afraid to transfer you will need to go through regular probate
