Ancillary Proceedings For Out-Of-State Probates
Ancillary probate refers to an additional probate proceeding in another state, other than the primary probate that occurs in the decedent’s home state.
The lawyers at Bieber & Czechowski assist personal representatives and family members with the probate process in Michigan. Our probate practice is comprehensive and we cover all local clients, as well as out-of-state decedents who had property in Michigan. In those circumstances, we help clients directly and we work collaboratively with out-of-state attorneys in making a smooth transition through our local procedures.
Our office is in Warren, but we routinely work with clients nationally. If you are looking for a Michigan law firm to help with an ancillary probate for Michigan property, call our office at 586-754-1450.
Reliable Experience And Extensive Legal Knowledge
If you are a family member, personal representative or attorney of someone who died living in another state and owning Michigan property, you can rely on our familiarity with Michigan courts and rules. We provide effective and efficient legal services to assist with the ancillary probate process. Each of our partners has more than 40 years of experience in probate and estate administration, elder law and estate planning.

Ancillary Probates Can Transfer Michigan Property
Typically, our ancillary probate services deal with the probate proceeding to handle the sale or transfer to heirs of real estate in Michigan. We can, however, also help clients with property registered and titled in Michigan or that which is attached to Michigan real estate, such as:
- Other motor vehicles
- Business licenses
- Rights to natural resources
Whether the decedent died with a will or trust or died intestate, we are equipped to answer your questions and help you meet every requirement of the Michigan probate process.
