It is human nature to want to avoid the conversation of one’s own death. Regardless of the value of your worldly possessions, if you don’t have an estate plan, then you are leaving your life’s work and loved ones in the hands of the courts.
If someone you care about has become incapacitated, and can no longer manage their affairs, New York State offers the option of Guardianship under Article 81. There are different scenarios where this option is helpful for managing decisions and finances.
Probate is the process where a person’s Last Will and Testament is approved by the Surrogate Court. It proves to any party or organization involved in a person’s estate (banks, government, real estate agents) that the Will has gone through scrutiny and due process.
