Brooklyn, NY |

I am filing a probate petition here in Kings County. Is it ok if I submit facsimiles of the notarized waiver of process and consent to probate forms from all the beneficiaries, OR do I have to secure the physical originals?

Thank you.

The Kings County Surrogate's Court asks for original signatures and notary seals on all documents submitted as part of the probate petition. You are going to need to have the originals mailed back to you so you can submit them. I encourage you to make and keep copies just in case.

Attorney Jiminez is correct. The court will require originals (keep copies for yourself)
