we resently submitted a will to the courts in florida in regards to an estate of my late father-inlaw. later we received a document (we live in NY) that we need proof of will or codicil is required: it is not self proving and also OTHER: must have the physical address discription on the petition for summary administration and the order of summary administration. 2. an order admitting the will to probate is required. My question is "can we obtain these documents in our state of NY, have them filled out in front and notorized by a notorary and or judge from a town hall or town court house? flying down to FL around christmas is an expensive one. if we can do this in NY, we would like to know. thank you in advance for any help you can provide us with!!!!!
