How Does Probate Work In Utah?

When someone in Utah passes away, their wealth and belongings undergo a legal process called probate to ensure a proper transfer to their designated beneficiaries as stated in their will. In the absence of a will, Utah’s laws on intestate succession come into play for distributing the assets. To initiate the probate proceedings, it is necessary to present both the deceased individual’s will and an official death certificate to the appropriate probate court.

An individual will be appointed (usually a close relative) who oversees the probate process from start to finish. Their list of responsibilities includes:

  • Opening probate and notifying creditors, heirs, and the public of death
  • Asset collection, inventory, and appraisal of the decedent
  • Negotiating debt settlements with creditors
  • Taking action on creditor’s claims against the estate
  • Filing final tax returns
  • Tax payments, including estate taxes
  • Compiling a formal accounting report 
  • Interacting with the courts
  • Transferring assets to beneficiaries
  • Closing the probate and estate by filing a petition
  • And more!
