The Probate PowerPack is an essential tool for the Probate practitioner.
This program complements our automated Probate
volume, resulting in a truly impressive product! You’ll
find that our sophisticated Probate PowerPack greatly reduces the
time it takes to complete your inventory and appraisals and to
generate the requisite documents.
Inventory and Appraisal
With our easy-to-use Probate PowerPack, generating the Inventory
and Appraisal forms become simple and routine tasks. That’s
because the Inventory and Appraisal program in the PowerPack enables
you to enter all the necessary information only once in a specially
designed spreadsheet and then sit back while the program performs
the calculations and prepares the documents.
In addition to saving time when completing your inventory and
appraisals and generating the requisite documents, the program
greatly reduces the pain of these tedious tasks. And, it makes
printing the Accounting almost effortless.
It’s a simple matter to organize and list each piece of property
held in a probate estate in ProDoc’s unique spreadsheet. You type
in the description of the property as you want it presented to the Court
and the Probate Referee. List all Community Property in the Community
window of the spreadsheet and all Separate Property in the Separate Property
window. ProDoc does everything else… including the math!
The program then generates, automatically, your Judicial Council
Inventory and Appraisal (DE-160). It prepares both Attachment 1 and
Attachment 2 (DE-161), each listing the appropriate assets:
- Assets that were appraised by the Personal Representative on Attachment 1 and
- Assets to be appraised by the Probate Referee on Attachment 2.
The program groups together all similar assets and identifies
them as Community or Separate Property as required by the Probate
And, because the PowerPack is fully integrated with the Probate
volume, all of the property you list in the Inventory and Appraisal
flows seamlessly into the Accounting. Simply identify which have
been sold or already distributed or add any property found after
the Inventory and Appraisal was entered with the Court and you
are ready to print your Accounting.
This essential program includes even more features to make your life
easier. At any time you can export all of the data you have entered into
a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet so you can send the spreadsheet to your
client or email it as needed.
