NYC Wills and Trusts Lawyers
An unfortunate reality of life is that it someday must end. It is important to most people that their family and loved ones are properly provided for after their death. A Will can insure that your assets to to who you wish and that your children and their assets are properly protected through the appointment of appropriate guardians and trustees that you trust. Each family and family member is different and has different needs and requirements. The creation of trusts within your Will can allow you to determine when and in what amounts funds will be made available to your children and others after your death. In addition to protecting your loved ones, estate planning can maximize the unified credits available to you under the tax laws in order to protect your assets for your loved ones. There are many tools that can be used as part of an overall estate plan to do so, including the balancing of asset ownership between spouses, the establishment of insurance trusts to pay for estate taxes and the proper use of your annual gift tax exemptions to minimize your taxable estate.
