Port Saint Lucie, FL asked in Estate Planning and Probate for Florida

Q: How to word an affidavit for a release of lien with the Surrogate Court of NY, for which a credit card debt was settled

The estate is intestate as there was no will. The lien was filed by a credit card company, which has since provided myself as the executor with full docs re satisfaction of the debt.

The decedent lived in Manhattan NYC. I live in Port St. Lucie, FL

A: This is a question to be answered by a NY attorney. If you have a written satisfaction signed by the creditor, ask the NY attorney if you may simply file that or if another document needs to be prepared.
