What is a guardianship?

When it comes to planning what will happen after you pass away, it is also important to consider who will help you if you become unable to make important decisions while you are still alive. Your estate plan in New York can also include guidance on establishing a guardianship, or conservatorship, to handle your affairs if you become incapacitated.

Valid grounds for contesting a will

If you seek to contest a will in New York, know that there are specific legal grounds you must use to do so. You cannot, for example, dispute the validity of a will simply because you disagree with how it allocates assets, or because something contained in it surprises you. At Goldberg Sager & Associates, we help many clients navigate complex estate planning issues, and we are well-versed in the four legal grounds under which you made contest a will.

What is a power of attorney?

If you are unable to make decisions for yourself, a power of attorney can be used in New York to appoint an agent to do make them for you. According to the National Caregivers Library, this legal document can be used to grant power to another person over all your decisions or just particular areas. For example, you could grant a power of attorney to someone who can only handle your medical decisions or you could grant it to someone to handle all of your affairs.
