When an individual passes away in New York, their assets and debts need to be distributed and settled, respectively. If that individual had a will, the process is called “Probate”; if they died without a will, the process is called “Administration”.
While the topic of one’s own death is not a pleasant one, failure to plan for it can harm the very people you would want to benefit from your lifetime of hard work. An estate plan is necessary, regardless of the size of the estate.
