A Heggstad petition is simply a petition to the probate Court to try and establish the decedent’s intent that they intended for assets to be a part of a trust. The most common way of showing this is by looking at the schedule of assets attached to the trust. If the asset is listed there it has a very good chance of success. What if it’s not listed there? In another post I will talk about some other ways we can show intent to get a Heggstad petition approved.
