While no one wants to contemplate their own death, it's important to plan for the inevitable. Once you pass away, your assets and debts will be inventoried and collected, then distributed to your heirs and beneficiaries through a process called estate administration. Estate administration is overseen by the surrogate’s court in the jurisdiction where the deceased person lived.
Regardless of whether a person died with or without a Last Will and Testament, the estate should still go through probate or administration. This process notifies all potentially interested parties of the passing of the deceased, and allows for the creation of Letters that make it possible to put a deceased person’s affairs in order.
Because probate and estate administration is a complicated process, it’s important that you work with a skilled and experienced New York probate attorney. Otherwise, you may miss an important filing deadline, fail to identify all estate assets, or wind up paying more in taxes than was necessary.
If you need assistance preparing a Last Will or you need an attorney to probate a will or administer an estate, contact the Law Office of Thomas J. Minotti, P.C. today. Call 845-570-9300, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or complete the online form.
