New York estate planning law may sound like it’s only for the very wealthy; however, in the eyes of the law, an estate is simply the aggregate of property an individual owns, and almost everyone owns something. Property ownership includes individual and jointly owned bank accounts, stocks and bonds, retirement accounts, real estate, jewelry, vehicles, your online digital footprint, and even pets. Short of being utterly destitute, you have an estate, and planning for it helps protect yourself, your family, and your loved ones in New York and New Jersey.
