Estates and Probate
Probate is the process of proving that a Will is valid in accordance with New York State law. It is a court-supervised process of gathering the deceased's assets and distributing them to creditors and inheritors.
Once the Surrogate's Court has determined that a Will is valid, the Executor or Executrix named in the Will is appointed to distribute the estate.
For a will to be valid, it must be properly executed and accurately reflect the wishes of the individual. The Will has no legal effect until it is admitted into probate.
