Clark County Law Library Offers Self Help Kits

hey! sharing is caring :)

“The Only Two Certainties In Life Are Death And Taxes”. And, while no one likes to talk about either of them, ignoring either of them is not a good solution.

The Clark County Law Library is selling a new self-help form kit, The Small Estate Affidavit, which may be an alternative to probate in some circumstances.

The kit includes forms and instructions to transfer the personal property of a Washington resident who died without using probate. These are generally situations where there is no real estate and the value of the estate is less than $100,000.

Flowcharts help people decide if they are eligible to use the process, determine who is a “successor” for the procedure, understand the different types of property, and explain how to distribute the property.

“We are glad to be able to offer a resource that is so much more detailed and helpful than any material we have previously had access to,” said Law Librarian Maria Sosnowski. “Hopefully this kit will provide assistance after a death in what is typically a very stressful time.”

The kit can be purchased online, and the Law Library will then mail the kit to the purchaser.

Find information and a link to purchase on the Law Library self-help form kits web page.
