Uncontested Probate in New York
Probate is the legal process that takes place when a deceased person leaves a will. It involves validating the will, identifying and appraising the decedent's assets, paying debts and taxes, and distributing the remaining assets to the beneficiaries as the will dictates.
The Browne Firm will bring both experience and compassion in assisting you with your uncontested probate case, where the validity of the will or the distribution of assets is not disputed. Our team can provide support throughout the entire process, ensuring that the wishes of the decedent are respectfully carried out.
Uncontested Estate Administration in New York
Estate administration is a process similar to probate that occurs when a person dies without a valid will, or "intestate." In these instances, New York's intestacy laws determine how the decedent's assets are distributed among surviving relatives.
The Browne Firm is well-versed in assisting clients with uncontested estate administration, and will help you navigate the process, manage the responsibilities involved, and ensure that all actions comply with New York laws.
