Answer:

Dependent Administration

(Supervised Administration)

You have arrived at this solution because:

  • The Decedent died without leaving a Will.

  • The Decedent died leaving property other than motor vehicles, real estate, and/or tangible personal property.

  • The value of the assets of the estate do not exceed the liabilities of the estate.

 

In this scenario, the courts are reluctant to approve a small estate affidavit or grant an independent administration because the assets of the estate may not be enough to satisfy creditor's claims. Instead, a dependent administration may be necessary to effectively prioritize and pay creditor’s claims. The good news is that a dependent administration can be difficult on creditors as there are many hurdles they have to overcome in order to get paid.
