Courts in Commack, New York
One of the most important services that Mark S. Eghrari & Associates PLLC can provide to Commack residents is help with legal issues that must be handled in court. Because Commack is a part of Suffolk County, legal matters that must be handled in court are addressed in the Suffolk County Court System, which is within the 10th Judicial District.
The NY Courts website provides information on the courts in Suffolk County where your legal issues will be resolved. If you have a probate or estate issue to address, the court that will preside over your case is the Surrogate Court for Suffolk County, which is located at 320 Center Drive in Riverhead, NY 11901. You can contact the Suffolk County Surrogate Court at 631-852-1713.
The Suffolk County Surrogate Court presides over the probate process when a person has passed away and assets must transfer on to new owners during probate. Mark S. Eghrari & Associates PLLC can represent the executor of an estate who is in charge of overseeing the probate process and submitting the proper paperwork to the courts. We can also represent heirs or beneficiaries who want to make sure they protect their inheritance in probate court and we can represent anyone who wishes to contest a will because they do not believe that the will is a valid and accurate reflection of the wishes of the deceased.
Another type of case that is handled in probate court is a guardianship case. Guardianship or conservatorship proceedings become necessary in circumstances where a person has become incapacitated without creating a power of attorney. An incapacitated person cannot make his own decisions or manage his own affairs, so if that person did not choose anyone to act on his behalf before becoming incapacitated, guardianship proceedings must occur.
During guardianship proceedings, the court will evaluate whether the allegedly incapacitated person is in fact incapacitated. If so, the court will appoint a guardian to act on the incapacitated person’s behalf. Mark S. Eghrari & Associates PLLC can represent clients in guardianship proceedings who believe their loved one is incapacitated and who want authority to make decisions on his or her behalf.
