What is probate? | Long Island Probate Attorneys

May 13, 2014 2:41 pm

Probate in New York is simpler than in other states, such as Florida or California, which go by the Uniform Probate Code. New York and some other states go by Common Law Probate, which results in a simpler, shorter process.

Probate is the process of submitting an original will to the court. The court will appoint an executor, allowing that person access to the deceased assets in order to pay bills and eventually give out assets to the beneficiaries of the will.
