How do I go about filing a petition to stop/dismiss my probate case? Are there any requirements to do this? The estate is insolvent and I need to abandon my deceased mother's house. The house was the only asset in the probate case.

If an Inventory & Appraisal hasn't been filed, you can file a Judicial Counsel Form CIV-110 "Request for Dismissal". If an Inventory & Appraisal has been filed, you will need to prepare a "Petition Requesting Dismissal of Probate and Discharge of Personal Representative" and ask the Judge for permission to dismiss the case. That is not a preprinted "form" document.
