  • The Probate Process
    This online class will take place Tuesday, July 7 from 3:00-5:00 p.m. The loss of a loved one is always difficult. If you are named as the Executor of the decedent’s estate, your legal duties compound the difficulty and could leave you feeling lost. If you want to know what needs to be done after the death of a loved one, join us in a free informational workshop called The Estate Administration Survival Guide: The Probate Process.

    Cornell Cooperative Extension of Steuben County again partners with Patrick Roth, Elder Law Attorney, CPA from Corning, to lead this workshop. He will help you:

  • Discover what you can do now to make the process easier for your loved ones after you pass away.
