Estate Litigation Attorney in Long Island

Do you need a Will?

A will, also known as your last will and testament, is considered a legal document which lists how you wish your personal belongings and assets distributed, and to whom.  Anyone over the age of 18 may create a will.  There are certain legal issues that need to be complied with in order for a will to be considered legal and binding in a Probate Court.  It is therefore vital that you obtain the legal expertise of a Long Island estate litigation attorney to prepare this crucial document for you.

When creating a will, it is not always necessary to have an attorney, but it is highly recommended.  As a legal document, any errors in the method in which it was prepared or executed can make it invalid.  It is also important to be aware of any earlier wills, and make it known which the latest draft that needs to be followed is.

Having a last will and testament is a very important tool in preserving your assets.  It can be changed as life’s vagaries affect your life.  There are various key points that a will can assist in handling:

  • Designate a trust to be established for family members after assets go through probate;
  • Nominate a guardian;
  • Help settle disputes through probate court;
  • Lessen the time it takes to free up assets to your designated parties.
  • Direct how debts, taxes and expenses are to be paid.
