ESTATE OF ANGELINA BESIGNANO, Deceased (665/12) — Petitioner seeks probate of a propounded instrument, dated March 26, 1990, as the Last Will and Testament of the decedent, and seeks the issuance of Letters Testamentary to him.

Petitioner contends that there will be a substantial delay in the completion of the probate proceeding, in order to obtain jurisdiction over decedent's distributees. Because of this delay, and the need to sell decedent's real property and pay the necessary expenses of the estate, petitioner has applied for Preliminary Letters Testamentary.

After reviewing the petition and the supporting documents, the application is granted. Pursuant to the provisions of SCPA 1412, Preliminary Letters Testamentary shall issue to Joseph P. Besignano, upon his duly qualifying according to law. These letters are subject to the limitations set forth in SCPA 1412(3)(a) and shall remain in effect for a period of six (6) months from the date of issuance.

No distribution of assets is permitted pending the further Order of this Court, or until the admission of the Will to probate, and the issuance of Letters Testamentary.

After reviewing the documents in support of the application, the Court dispenses with the filing of a bond by the petitioner.

Pursuant to SCPA 1412(3)(b), the preliminary executor shall give notice to all parties who have appeared herein within ten (10) days of his appointment.

This decision shall constitute the Order of the Court.
