    Sometimes family strife and ugly legal battles can leave your loved ones devastated. This is where estate planning:

    Protect the future of your loved ones

    Key Elements of Estate Planning

    Last Will & Testament

    A will is a document that records your last wishes about how your earned assets need to be distributed after your demise. It records the names of the ones you want to leave your assets to.

    Healthcare Power of Attorney

    An HPOA is a legal document that allows you to name a person who can make decisions about your medical care on your behalf. This is applicable when you’re not in a state to do so for yourself.

    Living Will

    Living will, also termed as Advanced Medical Directive, this document states your wishes about medical care when your life becomes terminally ill and you’re unable to express your consent.

    Financial Power of Attorney

    As the name suggests, this document decides who you wish to be responsible for your financial decisions. This person will act on your behalf in situations if you become incapacitated

    Establishment of Trust

    Trusts are established by deed to indicate your wishes related to your assets. You can give the authority to someone to handle your assets while you’re living or after your demise.

    Why You Should Hire Professional Estate Planning Attorneys in NY

    Estate planning may seem easy to you. But the reality is more complicated. Most people who plan it themselves end up making mistakes that impact them adversely.

    Saving on taxes & other expenses

    Interacting with your beneficiaries

    Making efficient financial decisions

    Keeping your wills & forms up-to-date

    Frequently Asked Questions

    1. What is an estate settlement?

    It is a process by which a descendant’s possessions are managed. Such a settlement is a three-step process:

    • Appointment with a fiduciary, such as executor or administrator.
    • Collecting assets, current expenses, taxes and resolving claims against the estate.
    • Preparing an accounting for the beneficiaries and distributing the net estate as per the Will or the intestacy law.
    2. What is an intestate estate?

    An intestate estate or intestacy means when the deceased has not drafted any Will before death. In such cases, it is recommended to hire only experienced estate planning attorneys in NY to get a proper solution. Else the estate will be distributed to your “heirs by law”.

    3. How will estate planning benefit my family?

    The biggest benefit of estate planning for your family is that they won’t suffer or worry about how your estate needs to be handled after your demise. It is especially true when they’re still grieving.

    To simply put across, an estate plan is a testimony of your decisions and instructions about how and by whom your assets will be possessed and managed after you are gone. Your trust will decide what needs to be done with your possessions and money.

    4. When is the right time for estate planning?

    There’s no exact answer to this. In reality, if you are not a minor and possess anything in your name, you should consider estate planning.

    5. What’s the difference between estate planning and will?

    These are two processes that often go hand-in-hand. Estate planning and will are often used interchangeably, but both have different significance. Estate planning is about planning about your possessions in a way that’s valid when you are alive and after your demise. On the other hand, wills is a legal document that incorporates your wish regarding whom you want to leave your possessions to, after your demise.
