A few years later, Caitlin meets and marries her co-worker, Josh. She doesn’t bother creating a will at this time. She figures that the New York laws of intestacy will automatically pass her estate to Josh if she were to die. What she hasn’t considered is that without a written will naming him as Executor of her estate, Josh will have to make time-consuming and uncertain petitions to the court. What’s more, Caitlin didn’t stop to think about the personal items of jewelry and art that she strongly prefers her sister to inherit. In this moment, Caitlin needs a Last Will and Testament, Living Will, Health Care Proxy and a Power of Attorney.
