Probate and Administration of Decedent's Estates

Retain a Probate Attorney in Queens, New York

When you pass away, your will goes into probate, which is the process of your last will and testament being submitted for approval through the New York court system. For family members named in the will, this process can be stressful. New York is known to have some of the most complicated and confusing probate laws in the country, so it is highly important that you retain the representation of a dedicated attorney to ensure that the probate process is expedited and properly conducted.

During the probate process, the executor who is named in the last will and testament document and designated to carry out the deceased individual's wishes will monitor the handling of the case. At this time, parties have the chance to contest any terms of the will. The probate process is filed with the local Queens County's Surrogate's Court or any court within the county in which the deceased individual last held residence. The original will, death certificate and probate petition will all be filed together. Once the process has been completed, the administration of a decedent's estate will begin. In order to fully protect the value of the estate, it is highly recommended that you work with a Queens probate attorney at Pollak & Slepian, L.L.P.
