Very small estates in Kansas

Affidavit for Estates Under $40,000 
This is a form to create an affidavit available through the Kansas Judicial Council.  This form allows the heirs to transfer up to $40,000 in assets (usually bank accounts) to all the heirs, without any thing going through probate court.  The affidavit is prepared and presented to the holder of the assets.

This form can be used to transfer title to automobiles by all the heirs, following the death of the primary owner.  It is also for estates with less than $40,000 in value.
Because of the title issues involved, land and homes cannot be transferred in this manner, even if they are of very low value.
