My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: North Carolina
Does the small estate limit apply to each individual or the total estate. In a case where the husband who passed five years ago had a vehicle title in his name only and his wife never changed the title to her name. She passed away three years ago everything was settled through the small estate process as most everything was included in a trust. Would this vehicles value apply to the final estate or does the husband have a separate small estate imit since this vehicle was not included in the final estate settlement. Since I was the only heir I did not want to have the vehicle transferred to me if it would open up probate or is there a statue of limitations for probate.
