Frequently Asked Questions

Probate is the legal process of administering the estate of a deceased person, including resolving claims and distributing assets to beneficiaries. It is necessary to ensure that the decedent’s debts are paid and their assets are distributed according to their wishes or state law.
The duration of probate can vary depending on the complexity of the estate, potential disputes, and court schedules. In New York, probate typically takes around 9 to 12 months, but it can take longer for more complex cases.
Not all estates are required to go through probate. 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, can pass outside of probate.
The executor or administrator of an estate has various responsibilities, 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 streamlined or minimized with proper estate planning strategies, it cannot always be entirely avoided. However, certain planning techniques such as revocable living trusts, 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, if necessary, 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 and the level of involvement of professionals.
If there is no valid will, the estate will be distributed according to state intestacy laws, which outline the distribution of assets among legal heirs. In New York, intestacy laws prioritize spouses, children, parents, and other close relatives in the absence of a will.
Yes, it is possible to challenge the validity of a will during probate. Common grounds for challenging a will include lack of testamentary capacity, undue influence, fraud, or improper execution. A will contest typically involves litigation in probate court.
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. Updating your estate plan ensures that it continues to reflect your wishes and meets your current needs and goals.
