Creating a Will with an Experienced Staten Island Attorney
Helping you create an estate plan that leaves your loved ones protected
Creating a last will and testament is the first and most practical step you can take in estate planning. An estate planning attorney at Armstrong & Lamberti, PLLC in Staten Island can help you draft the necessary documents to ensure that your property is distributed to your designated beneficiaries after you pass away. In New York, if you have no will, the laws of intestacy determine how your real and personal property is distributed. We have extensive knowledge of estate planning law and practice that allows you to create a strong will or trust, regardless of the complexity of your needs.
Wills clarify the challenging issues of estate division
No matter the size of your estate, you’ll want to develop a will if you own property. We provide you with the steps necessary to create these documents, including the following details:
- Naming heirs. A will is primarily a document that identifies your real and personal property and defines who will inherit it after you pass. It can also detail funeral arrangements, guardianships for your children and trusts to manage the distribution of your assets.
- Preventing family conflict. Following the passing of a loved one, the division of property among family members can be complex and fraught with emotion. Slight differences over the distribution of your personal belongings can grow into serious conflicts among family members. Clearly allocating resources in a legal document can prevent your heirs from fighting a will in the Surrogate’s Court of the State of New York.
- Avoiding intestate conflict. If you do not have a last will and testament, the laws of intestacy of the State of New York takes over the distribution of your assets. In most cases, your estate goes to your spouse and children, but if you would prefer your belongings to go to someone else or to be distributed in different proportions than state law dictates, a will can greatly clarify matters.
