Frequently Asked Questions

Probate is a legal process that involves validating a deceased person’s will, inventorying their assets, paying debts and taxes, and distributing remaining assets to beneficiaries. It is necessary to ensure that the deceased’s wishes are carried out and that their assets are distributed according to the law.
The duration of probate can vary depending on factors such as the complexity of the estate, potential disputes, and court schedules. On average, probate in New York can take anywhere from several months to over a year.
Not necessarily. Some small estates with minimal assets or assets held in certain types of trusts may be exempt from probate. Additionally, assets with designated beneficiaries, such as life insurance policies or retirement accounts, typically pass outside of probate.
Executors or administrators are responsible for various tasks, including gathering and inventorying assets, notifying creditors, paying debts and taxes, and distributing assets to beneficiaries according to the terms of the will or state law.
While probate can often be minimized with proper estate planning, it cannot always be entirely avoided. However, strategies such as creating a revocable living trust, joint ownership with rights of survivorship, and beneficiary designations can help bypass probate for many assets.
Disputes during probate can arise for various reasons, including challenges to the validity of the will, allegations of undue influence, or disagreements among beneficiaries. These disputes may be resolved through negotiation, mediation, or litigation in probate court.
Probate costs may include court fees, attorney’s fees, executor’s commissions, appraisal fees, and other administrative expenses. These costs can vary depending on the size and complexity of the estate.
If there is no valid will, the estate will be distributed according to state intestacy laws, which determine how assets are distributed among legal heirs. In New York, intestacy laws prioritize spouses, children, parents, and other close relatives.
Yes, it is possible to contest the validity of a will during probate. Common grounds for challenge include lack of testamentary capacity, undue influence, fraud, or improper execution.
It is advisable to review your estate plan periodically, especially after major life events such as marriage, divorce, the birth of a child, or significant changes in your financial situation. Keeping your estate plan up-to-date ensures that it continues to reflect your wishes and meets your evolving needs.
