New York Probate Lawyer
When a person dies without a will, this is considered "intestate". New York intestacy laws then determine the distribution of the estate. This can be complicated when there are no immediate surviving family members, such as when the person who died was not married and had no surviving children.
If the closest surviving relative is a cousin, niece/nephew, aunt/uncle or grandchild, this often requires a kinship hearing. A kinship hearing can determine who receives the inheritance. Even without a will, these types of relatives can still inherit with the help of an experienced kinship hearing attorney.
