How to file Form CC-1672

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 CC-1672, take a break, and then review. Probate and estate settlement processes in VA are long enough to begin with, and making a silly error can push your timeline even farther back. No thank you!

Step 3 - Have Form CC-1672 witnessed or notarized (if required)

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.

Step 4 - Submit Instructions For: Inventory For Estate Of Minor 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 Instructions For: Inventory For Estate Of Minor 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 Virginia.

5 reasons you should submit CC-1672 as quickly as possible:

  1. The sooner you begin, the faster Virginia 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 Virginia. 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 Virginia 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 Virginia 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 Virginia probate clerk or court for exact answers regarding Form CC-1672, and when in doubt— consult a qualified trust & estates lawyer for that area.

In most instances this is the correct place for you to list the minor’s real estate. Part 4. The minor’s non-Virginia real estate. List here all of the minor’s real estate or partial interests in real estate not situated in Virginia, whether or not located in the U.S. Part 5. The minor’s legal or equitable ownership interest in any real or personal property that will pass to another at the minor’s death by a means other than testate or intestate succession. Include in this part the minor’s interest in any asset passing to another at the minor’s death under a survivorship provision, payable on death (POD) provision, or transfer on death (TOD) provision. Include the minor’s interest in a trust fund that has beneficiaries following the minor’s death, whether the trust was created under a will or during lifetime. Part 6. The minor’s rights to periodic payments from certain agencies of the U.S. government. This part requires the disclosure of periodic payments of certain federal benefits that are paid on behalf of a minor to a designated representative (whether the guardian or another) for which the designated representative (often called a representative payee) is required to report to a federal agency. (Payments for which a designated representative is not required to report to a federal agency are reportable in Part 7.) As a general rule, only Social Security payments, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, Department of Veterans Affairs benefits and Black Lung benefits will be listed in this section. If the designated representative is required by the agency to file a separate report with that agency regarding the use of the funds, Virginia law requires the guardian to disclose the existence of these federal benefits on the Inventory and the Account, but does not require the guardian to account for the use of these benefits. However, if these funds are commingled with other guardianship funds, they must be included in the Account (see Instructions to Account). Show the value of these payments on an annualized basis. For example, “Monthly Social Security benefits of $250 ............................ Value $3,000.” FORM CC-1672 (INST) (MASTER, PAGE THREE OF THREE) 10/09 Part 7. The minor’s right to periodic payments from any other source. Include all periodic payments other than those that belong in Part 6. Part 7 should include periodic payments from retirement plan benefits left to the minor, a disability program, an annuity, a trust fund, etc. Although payments from such sources as the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and the Defense Finance and Accounting Service (DFAS) are from the U.S. government, they are retirement pay based on employment. Neither OPM nor DFAS require a guardian to file a report with them regarding the use of those funds. Therefore, these payments must be included in Part 7 of the Inventory and be fully accounted for in your account. Show the value of these payments on an annualized basis. For example: “Monthly Annuity of $1,500 ................................. Value $18,000.”
