Estate Planning, Wills & Trusts Attorney Albany NY

A Will is presumptive evidence of your wishes after your death. A properly executed Will streamlines the transfer of your assets by specifying beneficiaries, nominating an Executor to oversee your estate administration, and addressing potential family and tax issues.

Having a Will to address the custody and financial security of minor children is especially important. Absent specific planning, assets might not be readily available to assist a minor child or might pass to that child as soon as they become a legal adult at age 18.

When someone dies without a Will, their heirs have no direction. In those cases, state law dictates who can act as Executor and who will receive shares of your estate. This process can often become complicated if family members are in conflict, and incur substantial expense due to litigation.
