How we work:

Our usual process

Find Estate Representative

At New York Probate Lawyers, we first find out the representative of the estate. In the presence of a Will, we find out the executor. If there is no Will, we go by the state law to find an administrator. Our team will find a trustworthy, diligent administrator with good records. Until the estate goes to the right beneficiary, we are responsible for its care.

Asset Protection

We ensure that your properties are well-protected under our care. Our expert lawyers identify your assets and transfer them to your beneficiaries after getting certified copies of the death certificate. The New York Probate Lawyers attorneys also check bank account funds, social security benefits, veteran’s benefits, and safe deposit lockers. We also ensure that your credit cards are canceled to protect your debts and prepare your estate taxes.

Provide for Dependants and Beneficiaries

Our lawyers ensure that your estate plan will adequately provide for the people you leave behind. During the probate process, our team focuses on decreasing the estate taxes and strategies for adequate transfer of your assets to the beneficiaries. We cover the estate documents, living trusts, and joint tenancy agreements for providing for your surviving family. Our team also takes care of life insurance policies covered in the assets.

Identification and Inventory of Assets

Our team carefully identifies all the properties and assets for effective transfer to your beneficiaries. We list all your assets with a brief description along with the value of the asset and the date. Your attorney will also list all the debts and match them with the value of the decedent’s portion. While making your list, we also find out the type of properties like jointly owned or community property.

Transfer Process

After the effective valuation of all your assets, we will transfer it appropriately to your named beneficiaries. At New York Probate Lawyers, we go through Probate or apply simplified procedures to transfer your properties. We also figure out the properties that require formal probate in the court. With us, you can be assured that your properties will reach your beneficiaries smoothly.
