Experienced With the NYC Probate Surrogate's Court
The Probate Court NYC or Surrogate's Court has the jurisdiction to handle matters relating to a decedent's estate. Proceedings that are handled in the Surrogate’s Court include probate proceedings where the person has a Last Will and Administration proceedings where a person dies intestate or without a Last Will. Other proceedings handled in the Surrogate’s Court include accounting proceedings where the Executor or Administrator provides a record of all financial transactions involved in a decedent's estate. These proceedings can be amicable or can involve disputes and litigation.
Many of the procedures and papers to be filed in the Surrogate’s Court are unique to that Court. Proceedings relating to a decedent’s estate tend to be complex because they involve the validation of documents such as Wills or Trusts and the involvement of the decedent’s family members and friends. Various issues concerning kinship, document interpretation, business matters and family disputes can disrupt the settlement of a decedent’s estate.
