Plan properly with our estate planning law firm in Brandon, Florida, today.
What Is Estate Planning in Florida?
Your estate is everything you own, including your home, bank accounts, personal belongings, IRAs, and more. As such, estate planning is the preparation of a plan that will dictate where your assets will go when you pass on. In addition, an estate plan minimizes the legal costs your family will shoulder.
There’s also an important lifetime aspect in estate planning in Florida: it addresses what happens to you and your assets in the event of your incapacity during your lifetime.
Who Needs Estate Planning?
Our lawyers recommend that everyone in Florida consider estate planning — a plan tailored to their individual needs.
Here are some situations where an estate plan should be in order:
- Older adults who want to leave their children an inheritance without too much expense
- Families with young children (especially children with disabilities) that might consider an estate plan with delayed distribution trusts or special needs trusts
- Parents who wish to protect their children’s inheritance when they remarry
- Parents with children facing issues with creditors
Estate Plans Should be Customized
In estate planning, there’s no “one size fits all.” There are several aspects to be explored to ensure that your family is well-prepared. An estate plan customized to your personal and financial objectives will avoid uncertainty and unnecessary legal expenses.
