Appointment of Executor or Independent Administrator

The Attorneys at Robertson Legal Group, LLC is experienced Oswego Probate Attorneys.  We assist clients with probating Wills and Intestate Succession Matters (when a person does not have a Will) in Oswego and the Kendall County area.  The first step in the probate process in Kendall County is appointment of an executor or independent administrator.  Generally, a deceased person that left a Will has stated who they prefer to be their executor.  A person that deceases without a Will does not have this benefit.  A person must come forward to seek the appointment of the executor position.  The executor or otherwise known as the “independent administrator” is a person that assumes the responsibility of administering the court-ordered probate process.  


The second step in the probate process is filing a Petition for Letters of Administration.  A Petition for Letters of Administration is required when there is no will.  When there is a Will, a Petition for Probate of Will and for Letters Testamentary is the document that must be filed when there is a will.  Generally, there is a 30 day requirement after a person’s death to file the Will at the local Kendall County Courthouse.

Affidavit of Heirship

An Affidavit of Heirship is a sworn legal document, which describes a person’s family relationships.  The Affidavit of Heirship is utilitzed by the Kendall County Probate Court to determine the appropriate heirs of a decedent or a deceased person.  Generally, the Affidavit of Heirship describes the family history and relationships of a decedent.  The Kendall County Probate Court must make legal determinations to determine who the heirs of the deceased person are.  Heirship determines who are the rightful owners of an estate and the persons who have the right to contest a will.

The Oath of Representative is the sworn statement by the proposed executor or independent administrator to administer the probate state  to the best of their ability according to law.  The appointment of the executor requires this document.  The Probate Court will not appoint an executor or independent administrator without this document.
