Estate planning is a crucial step for securing your financial future and ensuring your wishes are honored.

This guide details the essential components of estate planning and how our expert team can assist you.

What is Estate Planning?

Estate planning involves preparing tasks that serve to manage an individual’s asset base in the event of their incapacitation or death. The planning includes the bequest of assets to heirs and the settlement of estate taxes. Most estate plans are set up with the help of an experienced attorney specializing in estate law.

Key Components of a Comprehensive Estate Plan

Creating a robust estate plan involves several key elements, from drafting a will to setting up healthcare directives. This section will cover each component, including wills, trusts, power of attorney, and healthcare directives, explaining their importance and how they function under New York law.

Why You Need a Will

A will is vital for ensuring your assets are distributed according to your wishes after your death. Without a will, your estate may be settled according to New York’s intestacy laws, which might not align with your intentions.

The Role of Trusts in Estate Planning

Trusts are another critical tool for estate planning, offering more control over how your assets are managed and distributed. Learn about different types of trusts available, such as revocable and irrevocable trusts, and their benefits and drawbacks.

Choosing the Right Power of Attorney

The power of attorney is a legal document giving someone authority to act on your behalf in financial or health matters if you cannot do so yourself. We’ll explore the types of power of attorney—durable, springing—and their relevance to estate planning.

Healthcare Directives: Your Wishes in Medical Decisions

Healthcare directives ensure that your medical and end-of-life care preferences are respected. This section will discuss living wills and healthcare proxies, especially focusing on how these documents are handled in New York.
