Buffalo Estate Planning Attorney Explains How to Change Your Will
As an experienced Buffalo Estate Planning Attorney, we often hear from clients wondering if they can change their will in New York State. Wills in New York State can be changed very easily, I have all my wills filed in the Erie county or the county surrogate’s court for safe keeping. The wills are filed there, if there’s something happens to you, they are readily available for the surrogate’s court. If you want to change it, I simply have you sign in an authorization allowing me to pull the previous will; I file a new will, with what the changes are that you wanted, or for that matter, if there are only minor changes such as changing the name or adding a child to the will. As a Buffalo Estate Planning Attorney I simply file a request along with the pre-existing will in the surrogate’s court and have that filed along with the will for safekeeping.
