I am in the process of filing papers with the surrogate court for petition of probate. I am just compiling all the needed information and such before I do so. I was told others named in the will need to be informed and listed. What is the form called that is sent to the other people named in the will? Also, does a copy of each get submitted at time of submitting the paperwork?
A Notice of Probate, and an Affidavit of Mailing of Notice of Probate. This is part of a package of standard court forms, most of which, including that one, are usually submitted at the same time.
Parallel forms called a Notice of Application for Letters of Administration and an Affidavit of Mailing of Notice of Application for Letters of Administration are used when there is no will.
