Idaho probate law changes


Recent changes to Idaho probate law include:

    • Authorization for wills and self-proving affidavits to be signed by the testator's proxy.  2008 Idaho Laws Ch. 76.
    • Revamping of allowances for a surviving spouse and children.  2008 Idaho Laws Ch. 182.  According to the bill's statement of purpose and fiscal impact, the new law "greatly simplifies and clarifies the probate allowances and their application.  It also gives freedom of choice to decedents on how their estates will pass.  Finally, it eliminates several problems in the Medicaid area, without having any current fiscal impact on Medicaid."
