Nassau County Wills Attorney
Last Will & Testament
A last will and testament, or "will" as it is commonly called, is a document that contains your wishes and instructions for the administration of your estate in the event that you pass away. Through a last will and testament, you can address estate issues that include:
- Distribution of your estate - In a will, you can establish specifics regarding how your estate is distributed. You can determine the assets or property that your loved one's receive, and the time at which they receive them.
Appointing of an executor - An executor is a person who is in charge of the administration of your estate and the
distribution of assets . You can use a will to appoint the person who will act as executor to your estate. If you fail to create a will, or name an executor, a probate court may appoint the first person who requests the responsibility.
- Estate taxes - A well-executed will may reduce estate taxes, which can prove beneficial to your loved ones.
