The Probate of Indian Lands: What Landowners Need To Know

Probate is a complex legal process with applicable tribal, federal and state laws and regulations that spell out the roles and responsibilities involved in distributing an estate. Depending on the person’s assets, two probates may required: one state and the other federal. It can take two or more years to complete an Indian probate so it’s important for landowners to know the rules and processes involved. As part of its online landowner resources series, Indian Land Tenure Foundation has put together a short primer on the probate process.
