Plainview Estate Planning Lawyer
Over 25 Years' Experience in Estate Planning & Probate
Plainview is a hamlet on Long Island located in the town of Oyster Bay,
Nassau County. Plainview shares a school system with its neighbor Old
Bethpage, as well as a library, a fire department and a school district.
Plainview receives its law enforcement services from the Second and Eight
Precincts of the Nassau County Police Department.
As of the 2010 census, there were 26,217 people living in Plainview, of
which 36.5% had minor children living with them and 73% were married couples.
With so many households consisting of families and married couples, it's
reasonable to understand why estate planning is an important topic for
the residents of Plainview.
Estate planning goes far beyond drafting a
will; estate planning is the process by which an individual or a family arranges
for the transfer of their assets in anticipation of death. A solid estate
plan preserves the maximum amount of wealth possible for the beneficiaries
while allowing flexibility for the individual prior to his or her death.
Your estate is the total real and personal property that you own prior
to the distribution through a will or a trust. Your real property includes
real estate and your personal property consists of everything else from
life insurance, to checking and savings accounts, to household items,
jewelry and other valuables. With estate planning, you decide who gets
what property and when, but without an estate plan in place; your assets
will be distributed according to New York's laws of intestate succession
(dying without a will), and your property may not be distributed the way
you would have wanted.
