NYC Probate Process and Administration

Probate refers to the process in which the Last Will and Testament of an individual is validated by Surrogate’s Court upon their passing. The probate process typically takes several months, and sometimes can take several years to be finalized. The amount of pleadings and documents required can be overwhelming, court hearings can quickly rise from a few to many, and the many issues that surface can be disastrous to the beneficiaries and families involved.
