Drafting Estate Documents
Planning for the long term well-being and financial security of your family can provide comfort. A Jersey City estate planning lawyer from our law firm can analyze your estate and advise you on strategies to transfer your assets, minimize estate tax, establish proper legal guardianship for children, provide for the care of pets, and support your most valued personal and philanthropic causes.
Our attorneys can draft essential documents, such as:
- Last Will and Testament – In the absence of a will, the state of New Jersey will decide how your property will be distributed, who will be responsible for your children, and what will happen to your pets. Make sure that your wishes are carried out by drafting a will.
- Power of Attorney – This document names a trusted individual to serve as a personal representative for your affairs should you become disabled or incapacitated.
- Health Care Directive – This document relieves family members of the health care decisions and stress of making these important decisions and ensures that your wishes are known.
Whether you have a small estate and only need a few simple forms or a large estate that requires trusts to be established and other complex issues, you can rely on our lawyers to assist you with all aspects of estate planning within Jersey law.
