Simple Wills in New York

A simple will is a legal document that determines how your assets will be distributed and who will take care of your minor children after death. Without a will, the State of New York will distribute your assets to your beneficiaries based on state laws. Not only can this legal process be highly contentious for all family members involved, but the outcome may lead to unfavorable results.

The following are the common provisions contained in a will:

  • Establish executor, who must carry out your listed wishes

  • Determine your beneficiaries, who inherit the assets

  • Include instructions on when and how the assets are distributed to the beneficiaries

  • Name guardians for your minor children

It is not uncommon for family members or potential beneficiaries to dispute the provisions or terms of the will. Common examples include disputes over property (land) or family heirlooms, conflicts with any amendments or changes, the amount of money distributed, if a specific property should go to a certain individual.

Whether you need to draft a will, or you made changes that may result in a dispute amongst your loved ones, you need an experienced estate planning attorney to protect your rights and best interests. At McCabe Coleman Ventosa & Patterson PLLC
