Affidavit for Collection of Personal Property
An "Affidavit for Collection of Personal Property of a Decedent" is a document proscribed by Alaska law that may be used in the case of a decedent leaving a few assets, but not enough for a probate.
As of 2011, an Affidavit for Collection may only be used if a decedent dies leaving no real estate, less than $100,000 worth of vehicles, and less than $50,000 worth of personal property, such as bank accounts, savings bonds, etc.
The Alaska Court System has an online PDF of the Affidavit for Collection (Form P-110) available to print. In the event of any changes in the law, this PDF will also list the most up-to-date maximum amounts of property.
