AL Probate FormsShow Table of Contents
There are a number of state-specific forms you may need when going through the probate process.
In Alabama, the local Probate Court has jurisdiction over probate cases.
You can check with your local court for the forms they might prefer, and below you will find some of the more common AL forms:
- Petition for Probate of Will - Get the probate process started if there is a will
- Petition for Letters of Administration - Get the probate process started if there is no will
- Notice to Heirs - Notify heirs of intended probate
- Personal Representative's Bond - Tell the court you have obtained any required bond
- Notice to Creditors - Announce executor appointment
- Estate Inventory - You may want to attach EstateExec's Inventory Report
- Final Discharge (with Will) - Closing statement to court in probate of will
- Final Discharge (without Will) - Closing statement to court in administration without will
Alabama does not provide state-wide forms, so above we have provided example probate forms from Montgomery County and from the University of Alabama. For other forms you may find useful, you can also see Montgomery County Probate Forms and the more extensive collection of non-county-specific Alabama Probate Forms from the University of Alabama.
Small estates sometimes need only 1 specialized form or affidavit: see Small AL Estates.
