Probate & Administration FAQs
After a person dies, ownership (the legal title) of his or her property, assets and personal effects must be passed on (legally transferred) to the beneficiaries (heirs) listed in the Will. If there is no Will, the persons receiving assets are designated by State law. “Probate” is the legal name given to this process.
First, the Last Will and Testament must be verified as the valid, final dispositive statement of the decedent (the official record of the deceased person’s final wishes). The Will generally names the person or institution appointed to administer (manage) the probate estate process. When there is no valid Will, State law governs who receives the assets of the deceased.
In New York, the probate court is called the Surrogate Court. There is a different Surrogate Court in each county. The Last Will and Testament of the Decedent must be probated in the county where the Decedent was domiciled.
The Probate process can be expensive, time-consuming, and may be open to the public. The length of time needed to complete probate and the costs associated with probate of an estate will depend on the size and complexity of the estate.
