I am wondering if my will should be filed with the probate court in New York of if I should just have it on file with an attorney or I should just keep it with my records.
It is your choice as to where you keep your will. The most secure place is to file it in Surrogate's Court for which the court may charge a $45.00 fee. Check with the Surrogate's Court in the County in which you reside for more information.
