The Maine small estate affidavit, also known as the ‘Collection of Personal Property Affidavit’, is used in the event that a person dies with $20,000 or less in assets in their estate. It is useful because it limits the time consuming and complicated probate process for small estates and allows the family to move forward with paying bills and dispensing of the decedent’s property and assets. This affidavit may not be used until 30 days after the decedent has passed away and it may not be used if there has been action taken in probate court. Only a successor of the decedent may use this form.
