Get Help Getting Through Uncontested Probate

When you lose a loved one, the last thing you should have to worry about is the confusing probate process. If you are an executor or administrator, it is important to know where to turn so you are not left to figure out your duties alone.

I am attorney Anthony J. Addeo. At my Farmingdale, New York, law firm, I help grieving families throughout Long Island get through the probate process effectively and correctly. I will put my more than 30 years of legal experience to use to minimize your stress and help you get through this, so you and your family can focus on what is most important.

Helping You Complete Your Duties

Even if no one contests the estate, you have important responsibilities as an executor. These can include:

  • Distributing assets from the estate according to the terms of the will
  • Settling outstanding debts with creditors
  • Resolving ancillary probate issues involving assets owned in other states
  • Appearing in court and filing paperwork documenting your decisions and progress

Making mistakes can lead to more time in court or even costly litigation involving people who may wish to contest the administration of the estate. I will take the lead for you, helping you get everything right the first time.

Completing Ancillary Probate

Many Long Island residents own property in other states — cabins in Pennsylvania, beach houses in Florida, etc. These properties do not go through the probate process in New York like other assets do.

As your lawyer, I can help you deal with all of these "ancillary probate" issues of filing the right paperwork in courts in other states so that you can proceed with winding up the estate.
