New York Executor Responsibilities

Attorney Robert Kaplan provides complete representation to executors throughout the complicated probate process. As executor, you have many duties, including the following:

  • Notifying heirs and beneficiaries
  • Collecting estate's assets
  • Estate distribution to beneficiaries
  • Paying estate's debts

When people pass away without a will in place, the estate passes through an administration process set forth by the state of New York. In this case, the Surrogates Court is petitioned to approve the appointment of the estate's administrator. However, when people pass away with a will in place, the will is submitted to the Surrogates Court. The court approves the will, proves its legitimacy and validity and approves the appointment of the estate's executor.

The law office of Robert Kaplan, P.C. will meet with the heirs of the estate, determine who is named executor, identify, in situations where the person passed away without a will, the proposed administrator and prepare all paperwork. The office then submits this information to the Surrogates Court to obtain approval of the executor or administrator of the estate.
