TRUSTS AND ESTATES
The Summers Law Firm can prepare a professional estate plan that will provide for your
future. Having a professionally designed estate plan makes dealing
with life's eventualities much easier.
Wills and Trusts
The most important reason you should have a will is to protect your
assets - your home, cars, bank accounts, stocks and bonds,
retirement benefits, jewelry, and other valuables.
Having a will gives you the opportunity to select the executor for
your estate, a guardian for your children, and provide instructions
for payment of your debts. Without a will, your property will be
distributed according to the presumptions of New York State law, and
the court will select an administrator for your estate and a
guardian for your minor children.
Preparing Your Will with an Attorney
The attorneys at The Summers Law Firm can help you prepare your will
and explain the tax consequences. They will help you comply with the
requirements for a valid will that minimizes taxes, reduces the time
and expense of handling your estate, and ensures that your assets
are distributed as you wish.
Changing Your Existing Will
You may need to change your existing will if you move to a new
state, get married, divorced, have a child, acquire a business or
substantial property, or suffer the loss of a loved one. The
attorneys at The Summers Law Firm can help you address these changes
by updating your estate plan as necessary.
