Attorney with experience in will writing needed in New York

Getting a will in place not only assures that your last wishes will be fulfilled but also gives you great peace of mind. In New York, there are certain restrictions and requirements that must be fulfilled for you to have a successful will executed.

First of all, you need to be of age. That means that you need to be at least 18 years old in order to put a will in place. The state of New York doesn't allow anyone under 18 to create a will or understand it.

Second, you must be proven to be of sound mind. This is a very confusing aspect because how do you prove you are of sound mind? What is the criterion? Being of sound mind doesn't mean you are completely cleared minded.

It only means that you, the person executing the will, knows the purpose of the will that is being made and to generally understand the nature of your property and assets. Even people who have a mental disability can qualify to execute a will.

Next, you need to have your will witnessed by two people. They have to actually see you, the testator, sign the will or see you testate that this is your will. The witnesses have to sign their name at the bottom of the will. They must also put their residential addresses at the bottom of the will.

Having an attorney from Weinstein & Randisi, who have many years of experience can be a game changer. When it comes to writing a will that will be upheld, should there ever be a question after you are gone, is the type of document that we are used to preparing and defending.

  • Filing for Medicaid is never an easy or fun process. However, working with the Weinstein & Randisi firm made the process simple and streamlined. We were able to obtain all files and records regarding Medicaid enrollment within a few days using specially prepared checklists and verbiage recommended by our assigned paralegal.
