Do you or your family member need help from a Dutchess County, NY Will attorney? Lamson & Cutner has an experienced team of Elder Law attorneys who can help.
A Will is a legal document that provides for the disposition of your money and property upon your death. The Will names your beneficiaries and what you want them to receive, names the person you want to be in charge of your estate (the Executor), and may contain other instructions, for example, regarding the care of minor children or pets.
In the absence of a valid Will, the intestacy laws of the state will provide for the distribution of your estate, and the Courts will assign an Administrator to be in charge. In this case, your estate may or may not be handled in accordance with your wishes.
