Article 32: Simplified Estates Act
Statute 59-3202: Administration as simplified estate or supervised estate;
determination by court.
On the hearing of a petition for the appointment of an administrator or
for the probate of a will where administration is sought under the Kansas

be administered as a simplified estate or as a supervised estate. In making
such determination, the court may consider the size of the estate; the
degree of kinship of the heirs, devisees and persons seeking appointment;
the solvency of the estate; the nature of the estate; the wishes of the
heirs and devisees; the probable cost of estate administration and
settlement; and any other pertinent matters.
