Probate Court and Wills
Experienced With the Probate Surrogate's Court And Wills
Probate is the process by which a last will is validated by the court. In New York, the Surrogate's Court is responsible for the probate of wills and Administration proceedings where a person dies intestate or without a last will. Probate proceedings involve probate court wills.
Typically, probate proceedings result in the appointment of an Executor and Administration proceedings result in the appointment of an Administrator. The Executor and Administrator are fiduciaries who are responsible for the administration and settlement of a decedent's estate. This involves the collection of estate assets, the payment of debts, expenses and taxes and the distribution of the estate assets.
I have many years of experience representing persons in connection with probate court wills and administration proceedings. I assist my clients with the preparation and filing of all New York Surrogate's Court papers and the administration and settlement of the decedent's estate after they are appointed as fiduciary.
