What is an Administrative proceeding in New York Surrogate's Court?

New York Surrogate's Court Procedure Act provides that when a person dies without a Will, the person's assets are distributed based on New York States' law of intestacy in an administrative proceeding. The family members, also called distributees, are entitled to a share of the deceased person's (also called Decedent's) estate depending on their relationship to the Decedent. See SCPA §103(28).
