Queens Estate Planning Lawyers

There is an old saying that the only things in life that are certain are death and taxes. This statement could not be more true — we all pass on eventually, and the government will collect what they are owed. Proper estate planning provides individuals the opportunity to prepare for these two inevitabilities, including limiting the amount of taxes they owe upon death and dictating their final wishes to their loved ones.

What Goes In A Will?

A will is the most basic tool used in estate plans, but it is also one of the most important. A valid, executable will is able to go through the probate process to tell your family and friends how you wish your assets to be distributed upon your death. It also helps to avoid conflict between family members down the road who might otherwise challenge what your final wishes truly were. Items commonly found in a will include:

  • The date the will was drafted and verified by the decedent and his or her witnesses
  • The name of a personal representative or executor
  • The name of a person who will act as a guardian for minor children
  • How assets are to be distributed among beneficiaries
  • Instructions to pay final debts and taxes

The attorneys at Joseph Yamaner and Associates also help people create living wills. Living wills are documents that convey a person's wishes regarding medical treatment should he or she becomes unable to do him or herself.

Revocable And Irrevocable Trusts

Another tool you might consider including in your estate plan is a trust. There are many forms of trusts available, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. The lawyers at Joseph Yamaner and Associates will discuss the benefits and drawbacks of each during your initial consultation before deciding whether one if appropriate for your situation.
