Frequently Asked Questions: Closed File

Why was my file closed?

Files are administratively closed when the fiduciary does not file the appropriate paperwork after being given notice and sufficient time to correct the deficiency. 

How do I reopen an estate?

For decedent estates, an interested person may file PC 607, and pay the filing fee.  For all other files, you must re-start the matter with another initial petition and filing fee.
