Ongoing will and estate planning to keep current

While many Florida residents understand the importance of drafting wills, they may not realize that once these documents have been written, certain events should prompt reviews and updates. Family circumstances and makeup change overtime, as do certain laws that may be applicable.

How to divide assets among children without conflict

Losing a parent is a difficult event for children of any age, and fighting between adult children could occur while everyone is upset and emotional. Parents in Florida who are planning on leaving behind an inheritance for their children can take steps to prevent or minimize the arguments siblings might have in such an event.

Components of a comprehensive estate plan

When Florida residents become mentally incapacitated or pass away, their estate plan determines what happens to any assets they own. The plan may also account for who raises their children or how medical decisions are made. An estate plan should contain a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act release, a will and a living trust. It should also include a power of attorney and a health care directive.

Testators advised to prepare for contingencies

Florida residents who are concerned with how their heirs will dispose of their inheritances can take steps to maintain control. They may need to account for factors like timing, as the order in which heirs testators perish may impact how assets will be disbursed. In some cases, it may be wise to let heirs make decisions to handle unanticipated events.
