Estate Planning

Managing the Details of Your Estate

Protecting your assets, minimizing estate taxes, preserving your wealth, expressing your values, making critical decisions regarding medical care should you ever become incapacitated and unable to make those choices for yourself — these are just a few of the many reasons why Teplen Law Group, PLLC, should assist in your estate planning. Without adequate protection, New York State may acquire or distribute your assets in a manner you may not have intended. Effective estate planning will allow you to carry out your decisions, preserve your assets and minimize estate tax liability. It is vital to understand, that without correct estate planning, the estate of a non-U.S. citizen is subject to a huge variety of estate taxes, not otherwise charged against estates of U.S. citizens. This can be minimized or avoided with proper estate planning.

At Teplen Law Group, PLLC, we provide a comprehensive range of estate planning and probate-related services for individuals in the New York City area, particularly immigrants subject to U.S. taxation. These services include:

  • Individualized Wills and Codicils
  • Revocable and Irrevocable Trusts of all types
  • Qualified Domestic Trusts (Q Dot)
  • Durable Powers of Attorney
  • Health Care Proxy
  • Business Succession plans
  • Probate of Estates
  • Estate and Trust Administration
  • Living Wills

For estate planning advice and individualized services — contact us online or call our law offices directly at 212-401-4040 or Toll-Free from the U.S. at 800-244-5266.

Estate Planning Services for Foreign Nationals

Although the estate planning and probate-related concerns of U.S. citizens and non-resident aliens are similar in many respects, immigrants in the United States on a non-immigrant visa or “Green Card” may face some unique issues, particularly with regard to taxes.

Our lawyers are experienced with estate planning for foreign nationals and — in light of the unique laws affecting non-United States citizens — can provide the services you need to anticipate and manage these issues through the creation or adjustment of wills, the establishment of trusts, estate and gift tax analysis and a number of other essential services. We will assist you in proper estate planning so that you may minimize tax liability and protect your assets for your family.
