Without a will you may not be able to direct what happens to your estate after you pass. When you pass without a will that names your executor, you have died intestate, and your property will be distributed according to New York law (EPTL 4-1.1).
What each of your living relatives then receives from your estate will depend on their relationship to you and New York intestate succession laws.
While everyone should have a last will and testament, not everyone should use the same type of will. Our experienced attorneys in New York and North Carolina can help you choose the best type of will for your individual situation and ensure your document is legal.
