My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client relationship.
Are tlu talking about probate? If so, was there a will?
I'm going to opt out as it seems we have a communication problem.
There is no requirement that an estate go through probate. If the assets are all jointly owned or the estate is insolvent then nothing happens if an estate is never opened.
Nothing will happen, but any interested party, such as a relative or creditor, may open an estate. It does not have to be a spouse.
