Surrogate Court

Surrogate court papers deal with estates and guardianships. Most papers from this court require in-hand-only service to people. As the most stringent of courts, there is no room for error in providing information with such papers. Please provide UPSI with as much information as possible (as in Matrimonials).

Citations require service of 10 days notice before court date, and if served outside the State of New York, 20 days notice is necessary. Affidavits of service must be filed 3 days before court date.
