Minor Settlement

Whenever a minor receives money or other property of value, from an estate, a life insurance policy or a wrongful death settlement the Probate Court must approve the application.  If the amount is $10,000 or less the money can be deposited for the benefit of the child and may not be used for the childs benefit without prior approval of the Court.

If the amount is greater than $10,000 then a guardian of the estate of the minor must be appointed.

If the minor is receiving monies as a result of an injury, the application must be approved by the Court prior to any releases being signed by a parent or guardian regardless of the amount.
