Ancillary Proceedings

The Law Office of Fanning and Hughes, PLLC, serves as counsel to attorneys and fiduciaries located outside of New York State and around the world who need to conduct ancillary estate proceedings in New York.

Where a decedent was domiciled outside of New York State and owned certain assets (usually real property) in New York, the fiduciary will need to petition the Surrogate’s Court in New York to obtain authority to act on that property.

In practice, these proceedings are used most commonly for real property. With extensive experience in real estate, our firm also provides legal services relating to real property issues.

If you need New York counsel to perform an ancillary administration or probate, please contact us.
