Who needs probate in Montana?

In Montana, probate is required if the Montana resident owned any real property interests (a house, a cabin, a farm, a ranch, undeveloped land, etc.) held in their sole name, whether or not they had a will.  Probate is also typically required even if the Montana resident didn't own any real estate, but they owned more than $50,000 of personal property, such as vehicles, bank accounts, or investment accounts, whether or not they had a will.  If you are in either of these categories, you should contact a Matrium Law Group attorney www.matriumlaw.com right away to make sure that your probate is handled properly.
