A Massachusetts Small Estate Affidavit is a written form completed to accelerate the settlement of a small estate and avoid a time-consuming probate procedure. If the individual has left a relatively small estate and their heirs believe it is possible to distribute the assets without delay, they are advised consider administering an estate outside regular court proceedings.
Basically, the local court is to be notified the estate in question is small to be promptly shared by all the heirs already known to the individual filing the affidavit (affiant) and let the people that would inherit the estate either way get the possessions sooner.
