From Tully Rinckey PLLC

‘The experienced attorneys of Tully Rinckey PLLC in Albany, NY counsel and represent individuals, families, and companies of all sizes, from seedling ventures to global corporations. We’re committed to delivering exceptional service.’

As we venture into uncertain times around COVID-19, it may have caused you to realize that you either have not done your estate planning documents (will, health care proxy, and/or power of attorney) or that they need to be updated. With many of us staying home to flatten the curve, it is the perfect time to either put the appropriate documents in place or update the ones that you have.
Further, as a result of this existing health emergency, many courts in the State of New York are closed or only accepting emergency filings. This change includes Surrogate’s Courts (the court in New York State that handles estate administration matters), which are currently not processing new filings unless they are of an emergency nature. In the unfortunate event that a family member or friend passes away during this time, you will be unable to set up their Estate to pay off final bills, distribute assets, or sell their house.
We are in unprecedented times, but it does create an opportunity to protect you and your family, as long as you have an attorney who can utilize technology and outside of the box thinking to assist you. The key to successful planning is taking action as soon as possible, while you’re still alert, aware, and healthy. Our goal is to ensure your peace of mind throughout the entire estate planning process. We can help you develop an end-of-life care and estate plan that meets your needs and allows your loved ones to understand your wishes.
