How Long is Probate in New York? Most probate cases take an average of 12 to 15 months to settle, some taking a few months and others as much as three years.
Is Probate Required in New York? Probate is necessary for estates in New York. It is the process by which those assets are transferred to the heirs. State probate laws provide guidance and requirements for how it is accomplished.
Whether you are an executor (appointed by a will) or an administrator (given powers to administer the estate by the Probate Registry where there is no will, known as an intestacy) there are five key stages to the probate process.
The answer is that, in New York, there is no statute of limitations on probating a will. In fact, I have probated wills which belonged to a decedent who had passed more than 25 years prior. However, it is generally advisable to do file and then probate a will as soon as possible.
Joint assets The most common and straightforward situation where a grant of probate will not be needed is where the deceased owned assets in joint names. This may be property, bank accounts, or life policies, that continue in the name of the survivor.

There is no need for probate or letters of administration unless there are other assets that are not jointly owned. The property might have a mortgage. However, if the partners are tenants in common, the surviving partner does not automatically inherit the other persons share.
In a probate proceeding, the executor named in the will files a petition in Surrogates Court along with the original of your will. The petition will include the date of death, beneficiaries named in the will, heirs-at-law in case the will is invalid, and an estimate of the value of the estate.
Typically 9 months. Estate settlement (also known as estate administration) is the phase during which you, as the court-appointed executor, must collect the estate assets, organize and pays debts, and file all final taxes.
Expect it to be at least six months before the assets may be distributed to the heirs and probate to be closed. However, one year is a more likely timeline for most estates. This time can be extended even more if there are delays, such as an heir contesting the will or disputes with creditors.
Only an estate valued over $30,000 must be probated when there is a will. The court has a small estate proceeding when the estate is below $30,000. An estate without a will is administered, not probated.
