INSTRUCTIONS FOR DEMAND FOR NOTICE Minnesota Statutes § 524.3-204
USE THIS FORM AND INSTRUCTIONS ONLY IF THE FOLLOWING FACTORS APPLY TO YOUR SITUATION:
· You have a financial or property interest in an estate and want to be notified of all orders and filings pertaining to the decedent's estate.
If you are not sure that this form applies to your situation, see a lawyer for help.
WHAT TO DO AFTER YOU HAVE COMPLETED THE DEMAND FOR NOTICE:
1. File the Demand for Notice form at the Probate Division of the Court Administrator's
Office in the county where the decedent resided at the time of death. 2. If an estate file is currently on file in the Court Administrator's Office, the Demand for Notice will be filed in the estate file and the personal representative will then be notified of your Demand for Notice. They are then required to notify you of all orders and filings pertaining to the decedent's estate. Note: If you have a claim against the estate, you should file a Written Statement of Claim within the appropriate time limits. 3. If there is no estate file open in the Court Administrator's Office, your Demand for Notice will remain on file with the Court Administrator's Office. Once an estate proceeding has been commenced, you will then be notified of all orders and filings pertaining to the decedent's estate. (Note: If no estate file is opened within a three year period of time after the death of the decedent, your Demand for Notice will be destroyed pursuant to the record retention schedule of the court.)
