Edited to add: If anyone knows a probate attorney in NYC, please pm me. I thought I could do this w/o an attorney, but apprently I need a court order? Don't quite understand it all.
Not to worry from this end, sistah. I never feel any mean from you.
Don't know much about probate, but I think having a living trust is the way to go to avoid probate, for those of us on this side of the dirt. Mish, you're so good at finding things on the web - have you checked the NYC Bar Association's website?
