Michigan law offers simplified probate procedures for estates of certain amounts and designation. A simplified probate procedure signs property over to the surviving spouse or heirs without much hassle. Estates worth less than $15,000 are eligible for simple probate in Michigan.

In order to undergo a simple estate procedure in Michigan probate court, you must show evidence that funeral expenses have been paid and that the estate totals less than $15,000 in value. If there are unsatisfied debts pending for the estate, you must pay them within 60 days of receipt of estate funds. In order to file for a simple estate in Michigan, you must file a Petition and Order for Assignment, plus a $25 filing fee and any applicable inventory fees.
