100% full benefit disabled veteran father with two adult children. Other relatives, my Grandma and Uncle. No property other than a decent amount of monetary assets. However, he had a mandated rep professional payee for 18 years, if that matters. Also, no debts that I am aware of.
What are the criteria for estates to need or not need probate? Also, will the fact that all his surviving family live in a different state (Washington) make things more complicated with taxes?
Thank you so much for any help!
