  • 2018 Probate Manual Available for Purchase

    The 2018 Probate Manual is a “must have” manual for all bar association members who practice Iowa estate administration, trusts, guardianships and conservatorships. The manual, a project of the ISBA Probate, Trust and Estate Planning Section and the Probate Manual Committee, incorporates legislative changes through 2017 and is available for purchase online as a hard copy manual or electronic version.

    Using the manual reduces the amount of time spent on routine, repetitive matters and allows more time spent on estate matters requiring the exercise of judgment, experience and training. More important, this 900-page, two-volume manual provides checklists to alert the attorney to deadlines, elections and alternate procedures in an effort to avoid problems in probating an estate. For more information regarding the contents of the manual, view a sample list of the Chapter 7 probate forms.
