I have all papers ready. Missing the Affidavit of Delay. No idea what to write and how to. My parents both died, one 2000 and the other 2010. No will. I have to file for Letters of Administration for the home they left. Please advise. I can not find anything on the web. Thank you in Advance.
I don't practice Trusts and Estates but would recommend that you get in touch with the Nassau County Surrogate's Court. The Probate Department may be able to put aside a sample form for you to use. See http://www.nycourts.gov/COURTS/10JD/nassau/surrogates_directory.shtml.

Dear Uniondale Heir:
If the home they left is in Nassau County and you are filing for Letters in Nassau County, did you prepare your papers using the Surrogate's Court Small Estate Form (is the Estate eligible for that procedure?) See: http://nycourts.gov/courthelp//diy/smallestate.shtml
You may discover that a visit to the court house and a conversation with a clerk may help. Perhaps the clerk has a sample for the form of affidavit explaining the delay in filing.
The answer provided to you is in the nature of general information. The general proposition being that you should try to avoid a bad outcome if you can.
I suggest to go to the Surrogate's court in Nassau County and speak to the clerk about the papers you need.
