The chapter outlines each of the procedures available, discussing first the requirements that an ancillary probate based on a domiciliary probate requires that a will has been admitted to probate or otherwise established in the testator's domicile and in not being contested. The chapter includes forms of a petition for ancillary probate as well as an ancillary probate citation and notice of ancillary probate. It next outlines when ancillary letters of administration will be issued, discussing the priority for appointment of ancillary administration and providing forms and a checklist for use in completing a petition for ancillary letters as well as a notice for application of ancillary letters of administration. The chapter then discusses the third option of having the non-domicilliary's will probated in New York (termed an "original probate") if the will operates on any New York property, is deemed by New York law to have been validly executed for probate in New York, and has not been admitted to probate or otherwise established in the domicilliary's jurisdiction.
Finally, the chapter discusses who may be designated to receive ancillary letters, the eligibility of a person to receive letters, and when the Surrogate may require the ancillary executor or administrator to file a bond before issuing ancillary letters
