Elder Planning Isn't Just For The Elderly

Legal help takes the guesswork out of estate planning

Estate planning is an important legal process for everyone to take on but for many different reasons individuals choose not to do it. Some New Yorkers may not believe that they own enough property to make estate planning necessary, while others may simply not know where to start to create plans that serve their needs and interests. What readers of this legal blog should know is that estate planning does not have to be complicated and that it can be greatly facilitated by the support of a knowledgeable estate planning attorney.

The lawyers of Enea, Scanlan & Sirignano work with clients of all financial and personal backgrounds to help them create estate plans that accomplish their testamentary goals and protect their wealth. The attorneys and staff of the firm recognize that different clients have different needs, and therefore for the support that they offer is matched to the requirements that each client brings to the table.

For example, individuals who have been married more than once and who have children from prior relationships may need to take care in their estate planning to ensure that all of their heirs are included as beneficiaries in their wills and trusts. Individuals without family may need to specify where their money and wealth should go when they have passed on if there are no human beneficiaries stipulated in their testamentary documents.

Detailed information on estate planning, wills, trusts, and other long-term care planning issues may be found on the website of Enea, Scanlan & Sirignano. This post does not offer legal advice and should be read as information only.
