Who inherits the estate in New York? Get the answer with a few clicks:
Find out who will receive any person’s intestate estate and how much of that estate each heir will receive.
The New York Intestacy Evaluator℠ uses the New York Estates, Powers and Trusts Law to first determine the legal heirs or next of kin for any person’s intestate estate, then to determine the legal distribution of that estate among those heirs.
User provided data is evaluated by referencing the New York EPTL to examine each potential level of relation for a qualified heir through the last eligible level of relation before escheat: first cousins once-removed (great-grandchild of the deceased’s grandparent).
Each user response is evaluated in comparison with the applicable intestate laws and all prior responses to determine the most relevant information that must be solicited next to determine the legal heirs of the current estate, as well as the dollar value that each heir is entitled to receive.
