What Is the Appropriate Estate Plan for You?
Did you just get married or give birth to a child? Have you built up a savings account and some assets? Whether you are young or old, if you have property, it is likely that you will not want your property to pass in the manner that Florida law says it will. You may have specific goals for what you want to do with your property. That is why an estate plan is important.
With more than 20 years of experience helping people in Pensacola and the Florida Panhandle, I know the importance of creating customized estate plans. I start by listening to you so I can match your personality and goals with the estate plan that is right for you.
Changes in the Law
Estate planning is complex on several levels. One of them is the fact that laws involved are frequently subject to change. A lawyer must keep up with changes to estate tax law, changes to the probate code and more. I take great care to keep up with the changes and make certain they are incorporated appropriately in the estate plans I create.
Do You Need More Than a Simple Will?
A lot of people who are sold trusts as part of estate plan packages do not need these packages. To make matters worse, the trusts are often used incorrectly. Assets are not transferred into the trusts, essentially making the trusts worthless or more trouble than they are worth. I am committed to creating an estate plan that truly makes sense for you. Perhaps all you really need is a simple will. If, after a thorough review of your assets and your goals, you do need a trust, I will work with you to make sure your assets are transferred into it correctly.
I can assist with all estate planning tools, including wills, trusts, powers of attorney, advance directives, living wills and more.
