Nebraska Probate Form 250 - Petition For Supervised Administration

WHEN TO USE THIS FORM: Use this form to request supervised administration in situations where there might be extensive controversies or where other reasons exist for having a court-supervised administration. This form is based upon the premise that the testacy of the Decedent and the priority and qualification of the Personal Representative have been previously adjudicated. If this is not the case, the Petition for Supervised Administration should include the allegations required in a Petition for Formal Testacy Proceedings. See Form 200 where there is a Will and Form 210 where there is no Will. See also, Form 252.

HOW TO USE THIS FORM: The petition is executed by the Petitioner who is either an "interested person" as defined in Nebraska Probate Code ยง 30-2209(33) or a Personal Representative.

Paragraph 3 should indicate the name of the Personal Representative.

Paragraph 4 should state the date of the Will and show any directions in the Will pertaining to supervised administration, or indicate that intestacy has been adjudicated. If the Will does not direct supervised administration then the reasons for supervised administration should be stated in the last alternative in paragraph 4.

WHEN NOT TO USE THE FORM:

  1. The form should not be used when the testacy of the Decedent and/or the priority and qualification of the Personal Representative have not been previously adjudicated. (See Form 252). The form must be filed prior to the time the assets are distributed.
  2. The form should not be used in informal proceedings. Use Form 200 where there is a Will and Form 210 where there is no Will.

COMMENTS: In certain instances, the request for supervised administration will be contained in a petition in a testacy or appointment proceeding. It is possible, however, that supervised administration will be requested as a result of administrative complications developing after the issue of testacy has previously been determined in a formal proceeding.
