heirs when I file my small estate affidavit in Rutherford county Tennessee. All I am looking to do is transfer husbands funds into my own Roth account. Technically there was no will, but I did find a handwritten, signed paper from my husband stating that all his worldly possessions were left to me.

My son died without a will. His father, sister, and I are his next of kin. I have no knowledge of any assets or debts. The insurance company requires a small estate affidavit with a federal EIN number to consider payment. Do I have to be the "affiant", or is the insurance company?
answered on Aug 27, 2019
You must file a small estate affidavit with the Probate Court. You are the affiant - You should use an attorney.
