LEGAL GUIDE
Written by attorney Tara K Frame

What is ancillary probate?

When a person passes, you will have a primary estate in the state in which the person was domiciled or resided on the date of their death. But if that person owned real estate or other assets in another state you may have to go through another probate process in that state. That secondary estate is called an ancillary estate.
