How to file Form 2625

Step 1 - Download the correct Kansas form based on the name and ID if applicable

Double check that you have both the correct form name and the correct form ID. Some Kansas probate forms can look remarkably similar, so it’s best to double, even triple-check that you’re using the right one! Keep in mind that not all States have a standardized Form ID system for their probate forms.

Step 2 - Complete the Document

Fill out all relevant fields in Form 2625, take a break, and then review. Probate and estate settlement processes in KS are long enough to begin with, and making a silly error can push your timeline even farther back. No thank you!

Note: If you don’t currently know all of the answers and are accessing Form 2625 online, be sure to avoid closing the browser tab and potentially losing all your progress (or use a platform like Atticus to help avoid making mistakes).

Step 3 - Have Form 2625 witnessed or notarized (if required)

Some States and situations require particular forms to be notarized. If you have been instructed to get the document notarized or see it in writing on the document, then make sure to hire a local notary. There are max notary fees in the United States that are defined and set by local law. Take a look at our full guide to notary fees to make sure you aren’t overpaying or getting ripped off.

Step 4 - Submit Petition For Appointment Of Ancillary Conservator to the relevant office

This is most often the local probate court where the decedent (person who passed away) is domiciled (permanently resides) or the institution involved with this particular form (e.g. a bank). Some offices allow you to submit forms online, other’s don’t, and we while we generally recommend going in-person to expedite the process, sometimes that simply isn’t an option.

It’s also a generally good idea to establish a positive working relationship with any probate clerk (unfortunately there’s enough people & process out there making things more difficult and unnecessarily confusing for them), so a best practice is to simply ask the probate clerk proactively exactly how and where they’d prefer you to submit all forms.

When Petition For Appointment Of Ancillary Conservator is due

Different probate forms or processes can require different deadlines or response times for completing the appropriate form.

While some steps in the process are bound to specific deadlines (like petitioning for probate, having to submit an inventory of assets, or filing applicable notices to creditors and beneficiaries), many probate forms or processes are not tied to a specific deadline since the scope of work can vary based on situational factors or requirements involved.

Either way, there are a bunch of practical reasons why personal representatives should work to complete each step as thoroughly and quickly as possible when completing probate in Kansas.

5 reasons you should submit 2625 as quickly as possible:

  1. The sooner you begin, the faster Kansas can allow heirs and beneficiaries to get their share of assets subject to probate. Acting promptly can also decrease the costs & overall mental fatigue through an otherwise burdensome process.

    Helpful Context: What’s the Difference Between Probate and Non-Probate Assets?

  2. In general, creditors of an estate usually have around 3-6 months from the time you file notice to creditors to file any claims for debt against the deceased’s assets. If they don’t, then that debt is forfeited (and more importantly, the executor won’t be held personally responsible). So doing this sooner means you have a better idea of who is owed what and ensures you won’t get a surprise collector months later.

  3. Not filing a will within 30 days (on average) could mean that the probate process proceeds according to intestate laws (laws that govern what happens to someone's stuff without a will) or is subject to unnecessary supervision by the probate court. And if you aren't directly related to the deceased (a.k.a. next of kin), this could also mean you lose your inheritance.

  4. It’s important to file any necessary state tax returns on behalf of the deceased or estate by the following tax season in Kansas. If you don’t, you could owe penalties and interest. This also includes any necessary federal tax returns such as Forms 1040, 1041, or even a Form 706 estate tax return.

  5. If a house in the State of Kansas is left empty (or abandoned) for a while, insurance can get dicey. For example, if the house burns down and no one has been there for a year, an insurance company may get out of paying your claim.

If you’re not using Atticus to get specific forms, deadlines, and timelines for Kansas probate, then try and stay as organized as possible, pay close attention to the dates mentioned in any correspondence you have with the State’s government officials, call the local Kansas probate clerk or court for exact answers regarding Form 2625, and when in doubt— consult a qualified trust & estates lawyer for that area.

The executor is responsible for the complete management of the probate process, including major responsibilities such as:

  • Creating an inventory of all probate assets.

  • Filling out all necessary forms

  • Paying off all estate debts and taxes

  • Submitting reports to the court and beneficiaries as requested

And much more. This process often stretches longer than a year.

See K.S.A. 59-3062(a). Unless all persons or agencies entitled to notice have entered their appearances, waived notice and consented to the appointment in Kansas of the suggested ancillary conservator, the verified petition shall request the court to set the matter for trial no earlier than seven days or later than 21 days after the date of the filing of the petition. See K.S.A. 59-3062(b)(11) and 59- 3063(d). One may also request appointment of an attorney for the proposed conservatee. See K.S.A. 59-3062(b)(\\u0018\\u0018) and 59-3065(e)(\\u0018). 2021 2600-7\\u0018 Kansas Probate Forms 3d In paragraph 9, the petition pleads the name, age, date of birth, gender, address and place of employment of the proposed conservator as required by K.S.A. 59-3062(b)(9). Much of this information will be helpful in identifying the conservator should it ever become necessary to issue a bench warrant for that person. In paragraph 9, the petition also pleads that the proposed guardian and conservator has no personal or agency interest that may be perceived as self-serving or adverse to the interests of the proposed ward. See K.S.A. 59-3062(b)(9). For examples of petitions where a conflict of interest is alleged, see Forms 260\\u0018 and 2620. Personal or agency interest includes but is not limited to, details of any financial, agency or other transactions between a proposed guardian, guardian, proposed conservator or conservator and the proposed ward, ward, proposed conservatee or conservatee as applicable. K.S.A. 59- 305\\u0018(j). As of January 1, 2009, every individual appointed as guardian or conservator must file with the court evidence of completion of a basic instructional program concerning the duties and responsibilities of a guardian or conservator prior to the issuance of letters of guardianship and conservatorship. K.S.A. 59-3069(j). The materials comprising the instructional program may be found at the end of the Miscellaneous Guardianship and Conservatorship Forms and are also available on the Judicial Council’s website: www.kansasjudicialcouncil.org. This petition was drafted to allege that the proposed conservator has already completed the instructional program. In many instances, it is expected that a proposed guardian or conservator will complete the instructional program before the filing of the petition; however, the statute only requires that evidence of completion of the instructional program be filed before Letters are issued. K.S.A. 59-3069(j). See Forms 260\\u0018 and 2605 for an example of a petition and order where evidence of completion of the instruction program has not been filed before the hearing on the petition. The verified petition shall be accompanied by a duly authenticated copy of the order of adjudication and appointment and documents showing the petitioner’s continuing authority in the other state. See K.S.A. 59-3062(c) and 60-465. If there appears to be imminent danger that the estate of the proposed conservatee will be significantly depleted if immediate action is not taken, this petition may request appointment of a temporary ancillary conservator; or, after the filing of the original petition, an additional verified petition may be filed requesting such appointment. See K.S.A. 59-3073. The petition may suggest appointment of co-ancillary conservators (K.S.A. 59-3062(b)(\\u00180)) and may be accompanied by a conservatorship plan (K.S.A. 59-3079). Many other states will use such terms as “incapacitated,” “disabled” etc. to describe what Kansas defines as “adult with an impairment in need of a conservator,” in K.S.A. 59-305\\u0018(a). Although the forms in this section deal with an ancillary conservator for an adult, ancillary conservators can also be appointed for minors. This petition may be verified by either a sworn or unsworn verification pursuant to K.S.A. 53-601. See Form 2501 for examples of both a sworn and unsworn verification. An unsworn verification need not be signed before a notary public. See Form 504 for required cover sheets and information about the use of personal identifiers in pleadings.
