What is the Nassau County Probate Process?

The Nassau County probate process involves several key steps designed to ensure the proper distribution of a deceased person’s assets. Initially, the executor named in the will must file a probate petition with the Surrogate’s Court along with the original will and a death certificate. The court then issues Letters Testamentary, granting the executor the authority to manage the estate.

Next, the executor must identify and inventory the deceased’s assets, notify creditors, and pay any outstanding debts or taxes. This step often includes appraising property and liquidating assets as needed. Beneficiaries designated in the will are then notified, and they may contest the will if there are grounds to do so.

After settling all debts and disputes, the executor distributes the remaining assets according to the will’s instructions. Finally, the executor provides a detailed accounting of all transactions to the court for approval before the estate can be officially closed. This structured process ensures that all legal and financial obligations are met, preventing future complications.
