The passing of a loved one can be an emotional and difficult time. Securing the assistance of an experienced New York Certified Elder Law Attorney can alleviate the legal burden accompanying the death of a person, allowing you to focus on the emotional elements that are important to you.
What is Probate?
When a loved one passes away, their assets are said to be in probate and it is during this time that the estate administration process begins. In New York, this usually involves three main components:
- The court reviews and approves the will.
- The court determines if there are any objections to the will.
- The court authorizes the executor of the estate to carry out the will’s instructions.
