What is an Estate Plan?

In simple terms, an estate plan is a compilation of numerous legal documents and entities that all serve the collective purpose of determining how your affairs will be handled in the event of your death or incapacity.

While estate planning may sound like an activity reserved for the wealthy or elderly, anyone can benefit from creating a legally sound estate plan. Everyone has an "estate" that comprises everything they own and control, from bank accounts, vehicles, real estate, and personal belongings. Our New York attorneys can help ensure these assets are protected and distributed to the appropriate parties after you pass.

Our knowledgeable elder law advocates are equipped to handle all of your estate planning needs, including:

A comprehensive and legally sound estate plan can allow you to minimize the hassle, estate taxes, and court involvement that would ordinarily be required to sort through these issues. Most importantly, an estate plan can help ensure your final affairs are not left to be decided by the state of New York in probate court.

Who Needs an Estate Plan?

Whether you have a large or small estate, estate planning can benefit people from all backgrounds. You are doing more than managing your assets and properties during the estate planning process. You are making health care decisions, personal care decisions, instructions for your minor children, and many other aspects of your life.

Why Do You Need An Estate Plan?

An estate plan is beneficial for everyone whether you have a small or large estate. An estate plan leaves nothing to chance and prepares for every situation in life and after.

There are many benefits to have an estate plan, the top reasons including:

  • Avoiding Probate

The probate process includes validating a deceased individual’s will and assets. Avoiding probate is the most common reason people seek an estate plan and the advice of an estate planning attorney.

  • Reducing Taxes on Your Estate

The loss of an estate to state and federal taxes is a great reason for many people to set up an estate plan. Married couples can reduce or get rid of their estate taxes by setting up AB/ABC Trusts in their wills.

  • Protect Your Beneficiaries

By putting together an estate plan, you can protect your minor beneficiaries, and protect adult beneficiaries from bad decisions, outside influences, creditor problems, and divorcing spouses. By appointing a guardian in your estate plan you can protect your minor’s benefits.

  • Protecting Your Assets

Once you know that a lawsuit is coming, it is too late to set up an estate plan to protect your valuable assets. Starting the process earlier in life can allow you to protect your assets for yourself and your loved ones without fail.

Benefits of Estate Planning

Consider planning out where your assets and possessions go, an estate plan not only protects you after death but during your life as well. It can benefit you in the following ways:

  • Save family relationships: You can prevent family feuds and legal battles on who gets what.
  • Save on expenses: Having a plan can save your family from legal expenses and not have to worry about probate.
  • Prevent difficult decisions: You can save your family from making them make decisions that put your life on the line or heartbreaking decisions. You can specify how you would want the decisions to be made.

In the event you pass away without leaving specific instructions regarding your assets, properties, and health, either the courts or a loved one will have to make these estate administration decisions for you. When you have an estate plan in place in NYC, you have greater control over what happens to your estate and provide your loved ones with more peace of mind.
