Estate planning for individuals without children

Many people in Florida write a will for the first time after having children. Although children are a great motivation for estate planning, people without children should plan their estates too. Without obvious heirs like children, it can be more difficult to determine where the property of decedents should go after they die.

Pros and cons of digital estate documents storage

Florida residents may have heard about companies that offer online storage of important documents to make it easier to settle an estate after a person passes away. Before people opt to use such sites, there are several important considerations to keep in mind.

Being named as an executor

When Florida residents are asked to serve as the executors under people's wills, they will likely feel honored that the testators such trust in them. Before accepting the responsibility that goes along with being an executor, it is important to understand what is involved. Estate administration can be a complicated process that involves some liability risk.

Celebrity estate planning mistakes to learn from

Florida residents who are planning for the future disposition of their estates can learn from some mistakes that celebrities have made in the past. For example, Heath Ledger and Paul Walker are both actors who died young and unexpectedly. However, Ledger had not updated his will since the birth of his daughter, and everything was left to his sisters and parents. Fortunately, the family decided the assets should go to her anyway. On the other hand, Walker had set up a trust fund that ensured everything passed to his daughter.
