The named executor must bring the following to the surrogate's court to qualify as executor:

  2. Death certificate with raised seal
  3. Completed Information Sheet-This includes the names and addresses of closest next of kin. This would include any of the children of the decedent's deceased children. This also would include the children of the decedent's deceased brothers or sisters, if the decedent had no surviving spouse or children.
  4. Personal check or cash for filing fee. This cost varies on the length of the Will and complexities of the estate. Generally this filing fee is between $100 - $200.
