Probate & Estate Administration
When a loved one dies without a will, the New York laws of intestacy dictate how the assets of the deceased are to be distributed. The Surrogate Court can appoint an administrator who will marshal the assets and then distribute the assets according to law. When a loved one dies with a will, it is up to the named executor to petition the Surrogate Court to probate the will and supervise the distribution of assets.
