Welcome! My goal is to do my very best to understand your situation and to provide a full and complete answer for you
Good morning. First, I'm sorry for your loss. I know, having lost my own parents, just how difficult this is for you! Second, with regard to your specific question, if the total value of his probate estate
is $30,000 or less in personal property (including bank accounts)(excluding real estate), there is a very abbreviated process for you to go through rather than the full probate process. You can do this by yourself quickly, easily and inexpensively. If you go to the following website: http://www.nycourthelp.gov/diy/smallestate.html .. it will walk you through the process step by step on line.
