The Petition to Allow Account is quite the resourceful form. This form makes a request of the court to allow the account that is being submitted. What makes it so resourceful is that it can also be used in a variety of contexts. For example, this same form can be used in a deceased probate estate. It can be used in a guardianship, conservatorship, a guardianship of an individual with a developmental disability, as well as a trust file. As you can see, this is a versatile document.

The Petition to Allow Account is a State Court Administrative Office form. If you are in need of the form, reach out to us. We can send that, as well as any other necessary court documents your way.

Most of these State Court Administrative Office forms are associated with Michigan Court Rules and statutes. The Petition to Allow Account form is no different. The Petition to Allow Account form is associated with MCL 700.5418, which states:

  (1) A conservator shall account to the court for administration of the trust not less than annually unless the court directs otherwise, upon resignation or removal, and at other times as the court directs. On termination of the protected individual’s minority or disability, a conservator shall account to the court or to the formerly protected individual or that individual’s successors. Subject to appeal or vacation within the time permitted, an order, after notice and hearing, allowing an intermediate account of a conservator adjudicates as to liabilities concerning the matters considered in connection with the accounts, and an order, after notice and hearing, allowing a final account adjudicates as to all previously unsettled liabilities of the conservator to the protected individual or the protected individual’s successors relating to the conservatorship. In connection with any account, the court may require a conservator to submit to a physical check of the estate to be made in any manner the court specifies.

(2) The conservator shall provide a copy of an account to the protected individual if the individual can be located and is 14 years of age or older and to interested persons as specified in the Michigan court rules.

In addition to this statute, the Petition to Allow Account is pursuant to MCL 330.1631, MCR 5.310(C)(2)(c), MCR 5.313 and MCR 5.409(C). To help you understand this form better, Darren Findling of The Probate Pro covers everything you’ll need to know in this video.
