Will Submitted to Probate


This matter deals with the last will and testament executed by the testatrix on the 26th of August, 1964. The matter is being handled by the Surrogate’s Court of Queens County. The instrument appears to be natural and leaves her entire estate to her husband. If her husband predeceases her the estate is split between her two adult daughters.

Case Discussion and Decision

The two daughters have signed waivers and consent to the will being admitted for probate. The will consists of three pages. A New York Probate Lawyer said the testatrix signed the will at the bottom of the second page. The final page appears to be an attestation clause that is signed by three witnesses and the signatures are notarized.

The affidavit reads that the three witnesses are sworn and depose to say that the testatrix in the presence of the witnesses subscribed within the will on the 26th day of August, 1964. The affidavit further provides the address were the execution of the will took place.

As there seem to be no legal issues in regard to how the will was executed it is hereby submitted for probate.
