to some is the cost of probate in its administration, a will can contain
the most diverse variety of assets, from finances to personal belongings.
By drafting your legally valid last will and testament, you can:
- Choose individuals or organizations to inherit your property
- Name a guardian to care for minor children or special needs family
- Name an individual to manage the property left to minor children until
they are of age
- Name an executor to administer the terms of your will upon taking effect

"What happens if I don't draft a will?"
If you pass away without a valid will, your estate will be distributed
according to New York intestate laws. If the decedent leaves no children,
then the surviving spouse is entitled to the entire estate. If there are
children and a surviving spouse, the spouse is entitled to the first $50,000
and the rest of the estate is divided equally between the two parties.
If there is no surviving spouse, then the children receive all of the
estate. The decedent's parents receive the entire estate if there
is not a surviving spouse or child. Creating a will, however, can help
you distribute property differently and may be beneficial for you and
