Protect Your Parents' Digital LegacyThe internet is now used for a wide variety of activities we take for granted as part of our daily routine. We use Facebook to share thoughts and photos, Twitter to keep in contact and on-line providers to manage our bank and credit card accounts. These items of information, memories and data are often characterized as “digital assets.” On September 29, 2016, a bill was signed into law by Governor Cuomo which enacted New York’s version of the “Uniform Fiduciary Access to Digital Assets Act” (the “Act”) which nineteen (19) other states have also enacted into law.

Last Will for Aging ParentsYour parents’ Wills contain details which are specific to the time they were signed. The Wills name an Executor and other fiduciaries, identify a spouse, children and other intended beneficiaries, and reflect the state of the law at the time of signing. The circumstances of the person named as an Executor or Trustee may have changed.

Make sure your parents' Wills are Up To Date: Part I

More often than not, a Will is prepared, executed and then forgotten. Years, even decades, may pass since your parents’ Wills were signed. A lot can happen in those intervening years. The attorney who drafted the Will could have died or retired. The two persons who “witnessed” the Will can now be unavailable. You must have the original Will of your parent to Petition the Court to admit it to Probate. In addition, you’ll need access to the two persons who “witnessed” the Will’s execution; or, the use of what is called an “affidavit of attesting witnesses.” Now is the time to locate the “original” Will.

Power of AttorneyA power of attorney (a “POA”) is widely used for financial and estate planning purposes and for avoiding the expense of guardianship in the event incapacity of the person granting the power (called a “principal”). The POA grants to another person (called an “agent”) broad authority to access the principal’s personal financial information; to sell or dispose of the principal’s property; to change ownership of the principal’s accounts and property; and to change beneficiary designations on life insurance and retirement accounts.
