Last Will Questions
If you need a will, need to change a will, or want to know why you need one, these last will questions will clear up a lot for you.
Last Will Questions | Why do I need a will?
A will is one of the most fundamental documents that you can have, as far as estate planning is concerned. A will allows you to decide who you want your assets to go to, allows you to decide who’s going to be the guardians of your children, who’s going to take care of the assets on behalf of your children, the trustees. Who’s going to probate your state? Who’s going to be the executor? Who’s going to be the substitute executor? If you don’t decide, then the state of New York has to, and we really don’t want to allow that to happen.
Last Will Questions | Can I change my will?
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 your 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. I would simply file a connoisseur along with the pre-existing will in the surrogate’s court and have that file along with the will for safe keeping.
