New Jersey Estate Planning Laws

Since we can't take our belongings, real estate holdings, or other worldly interests with us when we die, estate planning is an essential way to ensure that everything is divided and dispersed according to your wishes. In New Jersey, as in other states, one's estate is inherited by friends, relatives, or other beneficiaries according to the details in the written will. In the absence of a will, state probate court decides how an estate is handled.
