A Highly Competent Estate Planning Attorney Properly Manages Your Assets in Staten Island

Ensure the smooth transfer of your property after you pass away

When a person dies without leaving behind a will or estate plan, the process of transferring assets to heirs can become a lengthy one. In New York, if the deceased has not created a will, the laws of intestacy determine the individual’s heirs at law and the manner in which the assets are to be distributed. At Armstrong & Lamberti, PLLC , a Staten Island estate administration attorney can help you put together an estate plan that ensures your property is transferred to the right people with the minimum taxes and fees.

Answering your questions related to estate administration

The estate of a person who has passed away typically enters probate, which is a legal process where the deceased’s debts are settled and property formally passed on to heirs and beneficiaries. If a will exists and is admitted to probate by the Surrogate’s Court of the State of New York, the person named executor of the will is in charge of settling the affairs of the estate and managing the distribution of assets per the deceased’s wishes.
