Long Island Estate Planning Lawyer Seth Schlessel Discusses the Five Questions Attorneys Ask When Drafting a Will

Long Island estate planning lawyer Seth Schlessel releases a new article (https://www.schlessellaw.com/5-questions-attorneys-will-ask-when-drafting-a-will-on-long-island/) explaining the five questions attorneys ask when drafting a will. The lawyer mentions that a lot of people try to put off estate planning for later. According to a 2020 study, most people are simply too busy to think about estate planning. People usually wait until their lives are more established because they believe they have either too few assets or that they are too young to start estate planning.

“In 2022 more people are realizing that estate planning is not only something that should be done at the later stages of life but rather something that should be done as soon as possible. But estate planning and drafting a will isn’t something that can be done quickly or easily. Estate planning when done right is a process and a qualified attorney can help ensure your plan reflects your wishes,” the Long Island estate planning lawyer says.

The lawyer explains that one question a Long Island estate planning attorney may ask is the goals of the estate plan. Not all Wills are created equal so it is important for an individual to understand their motivations for creating a will. Family dynamics may also come up in the discussion.

Attorney Seth Schlessel adds that the financial situation will also be discussed in estate planning. An attorney will ask an individual about their assets and liabilities and which of the assets they want to pass through their will. The next question an attorney will ask is where the individual would want the assets to be distributed.

In the article, attorney Schlessel says, “One of the most important questions your estate lawyer will ask you is: “Who will you assign as the executor of your will?” You will need to choose someone who shares your values and knows your goals with your estate but who doesn’t have a conflict of interest in managing your assets. It is also essential to inform and discuss your will with your chosen executor to make sure that they understand their roles and responsibilities.”

Lastly, attorney Schlessel emphasizes that having an estate planning attorney in Nassau County or Suffolk county is important when facing estate planning matters. A skilled lawyer may be able to help the client save money while also planning their future in an efficient manner.
