Hi; My goal is to provide you with great service - if you have any questions during our chat, please ask! I'll do my best to ensure your satisfaction! I am sorry to hear of your loss. Since the estate is worth $5000 there is generally a simplified process. I will look into this and get back to you shortly.
Were you not able to see my prior post with the necessary form attached?
Let me copy and paste it here.
Thanks for your patience. Here is the form you will need: http://www.maine.gov/sos/bmv/Title/MVT-22%20Fillable.pdf You will need to fill it out and get a statement from the court that there is no probate proceeding.
