Avoiding Notice of Hearing for a Petition for Nonintervention Powers

Notice of Hearing is required if the only way you qualify for Nonintervention Powers is under the “Catch-all” provision (RCW 11.68.041):

  1. You were not a creditor of Decedent at Decedent’s death, and
  2. It would be “in the best interests of Decedent’s beneficiaries and creditors” if Decedent’s estate were administered with Nonintervention Powers, with that being presumed to be true unless an interested party can prove otherwise.

Problem: If the foregoing is true, you are required to give Notice of Hearing regarding your Petition for Nonintervention Powers, See: Satisfying the Notice Requirements.
