FAQs

Should Everyone Have a Will?

If you have assets in your name alone, the answer is generally yes. At a bare minimum, everyone should have a basic understanding of how their assets will be disposed of upon their death. A Will is a legal document that will provide clarity and instructions as to not only who inherits your real and personal property but can also be used to establish how or when your assets are used to care for your children (should they be under the legal age) or any other person who may suffer from an incapacity or disability.

What are typical Estate Planning Documents? Why are they important?
A typical Estate plan will include any of the following documents: a Durable Power of Attorney, a Living Trust, a Will, a Healthcare Proxy and/or a Living Will. These documents are important because they’ll provide your family with direct instructions on who and how the persons appointed under these documents can handle your legal, financial, and healthcare decisions. Having these documents in place will often give families peace of mind while accomplishing your goals.
I had a recent death in the Family. What should I do?

The passing of a loved one is hard on survivors, especially when you’re not sure what to do next. We’re here to assist you during this difficult time with practical recommendations, sound legal advice, and representation from our experienced team of lawyers.

I was named as Executor in a Will. What are my responsibilities?

The role of an Executor is to submit a Will for Probate with the Surrogate’s Court in the county where the Decedent lived. Once the Will is admitted to probate, the job of the Executor is to secure and marshal the Estate assets, pay the Decedent’s liabilities, and distribute the balance left over in the Estate account to the appropriate beneficiaries according to the Decedent’s instructions in the Will.

My loved one died without a Will. How do I make sure their assets pass seamlessly to their next of kin?

According to New York State Law, if a loved one dies without a Will, their assets will be distributed to their immediate next of kin, such as a spouse and child. The court will appoint an Administrator to marshal the assets, pay the liabilities, and make distributions to the next of kin.

What if my relative dies without a spouse or children? What happens then?

According to New York State Law, in the event that your relative dies without a spouse or children, the next closest blood relatives under New York’s intestacy law will inherit what remains behind.

Wills

These are vital legal documents that direct who should inherit an individual’s assets after passing on. Let our expert Will attorneys help you prepare for the future.

Trusts

When a loved one passes away, a Living Trust allows for a seamless transfer of personal assets to others without the need for Probate. Trusts can also be used to centralize and shelter assets from possible creditors and adverse tax consequences. Get in touch with our team today to begin drafting your Trust.

Power of Attorney

For many reasons, there may come a time when you cannot adequately manage your legal and financial affairs. Powers of Attorney allow you to appoint someone who you want to be in charge on your behalf and while you are alive. Having a carefully drafted Power of Attorney tailored to your personal needs can often be used to avoid a Guardianship Proceeding. In our opinion, having a Power of Attorney is indispensable when it comes to proper planning for the future.

Will Contest

If you’re questioning the validity of a loved one’s Will, you must set the proper grounds to have it contested. An attorney with experience in this area can help you navigate the legal process to reach a resolution that reflects the deceased individual’s true wishes for their Estate.

Kinship Matters

When a person dies in New York without a Will, and they have no immediate family members, their Estate is Administered in the New York Surrogate’s Court, and the Estate assets are dispersed to the closest surviving next of kin under New York law. If you need to prove your Kinship relationship to a Decedent who died in Queens or the surrounding boroughs, our team is here to help.
