Wills and Trusts Planning Attorneys in New York Providing Thorough Services
Helping you make significant financial and legal decisions
The most valuable estate planning tools you have are wills and trusts. A will is a legal document that declares your wishes regarding the distribution of your property and care of minor children and pets. A will is essential if you want to leave property to someone who is not your blood relative, such as a friend, charity or domestic partner. A trust is a legal arrangement that enables you, the grantor, to transfer assets out of your name to another individual, called a beneficiary.
At Anderson & Cahill, LLP we understand that preparing documents such as wills can be stressful. We work with you and any advisors to understand your values, your family arrangements and your financial situation to help guide you in making wise estate planning decisions.
Assisting you with your will
A will or trust can be used separately or together. A will enables you to:
- Distribute your assets and property
- Select a guardian for minor children
- Select a caretaker for pets
- Name an executor to manage property after your death, as well as the probate of your will
