The New Jersey probate code has two statutes that govern the admission of a Will for an alien.  First, the distinction must be made whether they are a non-resident alien or a resident alien.  N.J.S.A. 3B:3-24 governs situations where the decedent is a resident alien, which N.J.S.A. 3B:3-26 governs where the decedent was a non-resident alien. 

Why would you want to admit a Will to probate in New Jersey for a foreign person?  Well, often times foreigners have real property in New Jersey or a bank/brokerage account here.  In order for the Executor to marshall the assets of the decedent, they must access them and in order to access them they must have authority to do so.  By having the Will admitted to probate in New Jersey, the Executor/trix of the Estate will be able to accomplish this task.
