Griffin, GA asked in Probate for Michigan

Q: Will a notice of disallowance claim be a cause for a notice of continued administration?

Does a notice of continued administration have to last one calender year or can an estate be closed before then?

A: An estate can be closed sooner than one year but the administration must be COMPLETE before closing.

If the PR files a disallowance early that might not matter but if it is filed late in the year that may mean the estate cannot be closed without an extension.

Trying to do any of this without legal representation is fraught with risk though and you should consider hiring an attorney familiar with probate to help. It will save much in the long run.
