What Is Probate?
Probate is the court process that distributes someone’s assets after their death. Essentially, probate involves authenticating the deceased's will, identifying heirs and beneficiaries, paying creditors, handling taxes, and distributing the estate. In New York, the Surrogate's Court oversees probate proceedings.
Probate can be a complex, lengthy process. Our lawyers can provide assistance, keeping probate running smoothly and moving forward.
Handling an estate after someone’s death can be daunting. We can help give you a solid understanding of the process and ease the burden during this difficult time.
When a loved one passes away without leaving a valid will, a fiduciary, known as the administrator, handles the estate. The New York Surrogate's Court grants "letters of administration" to heirs or beneficiaries based on intestate laws.
If multiple persons qualify for administration, they must agree to give this job to one person. Otherwise, the court will choose for them. Eligible estate administrators include surviving spouses, children, parents, siblings, or licensed professionals.
Our team offers assistance with obtaining and delivering letters of administration. We want to help families get the inheritance they deserve smoothly, with little conflict. With more than 50 years of experience and a client-centered approach, our team is ready to handle your case.
Probate litigation refers to disputes that arise during asset distribution. In New York, these disputes can be particularly challenging due to the state's unique probate laws and procedures.
With the right legal guidance and support, these challenges can be made easier. If you're facing a dispute over a loved one's estate, we can step in and help protect your rights.
A living trust allows you to transfer your assets into a living financial entity. After your death, the trust can then transfer that property to your beneficiaries, allowing your family to avoid probate.
Other methods for bypassing probate include:
- Joint ownership of property
- Beneficiary designations on life insurance policies, retirement, and bank accounts
We can review your finances and help you decide which method best works for you.
