The Alaska Small Estate Affidavit Form, also known as Form P-350, is a form that is to be filled by the personal representative of the estate of the decedent, who has many duties such as informing all people who have an interest or who have claimed some part of the given estate. Unless there are any proceedings against the representative in court, he/she will continue to be the representative of this particular estate. To use this form, the value of the assets of the estate should not exceed a certain amount (hence small estate). The form helps in avoiding long, drawn out court procedures.
