What is Probate?
In New York, probate marks the beginning of the estate administration process. It 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.

Potential Complications in Probate
At Makofsky Law Group, P.C., we help grieving family members through the probate process. We understand this is a difficult time and we will compassionately guide you through the process. We also know that potentially difficult situations can arise — a family member may object to the validity of the will or question the competency of decedent at the time the will was created. Will contests and other probate disputes not only draw out the probate process, they can cause existing strained relationships within the family to completely fall apart. We can help you diffuse these sensitive situations and obtain a resolution so everyone can move forward and move on.
Your Probate Case is Unique
No two clients are ever the same. At Makofsky Law Group, P.C., we will work with you and learn your story so that our services can be tailored to address your unique circumstances. We take the time to find the most fitting legal strategy for every client.
