A determination of heirship is a proceeding in probate court. In this probate proceeding, an applicant will ask a court to determine which persons should inherit from a deceased person’s estate. The applicant must prove that the person is deceased. The court will typically appoint an attorney ad litem to represent any unknown or incapacitated heirs. The judge will then issue an order stating that the person is deceased, and declaring who may inherit from the person’s estate. Contact Us for more information.
