One of the most important things you can do to protect your estate is to draft a comprehensive will. Without a will, the State of Florida will divide your estate during probate according to state intestate laws. Our attorneys will draft a will that protects your estate at a nominal cost. You can have a say in this important decision by drafting a will and:
- Durable Power of Attorney
- Living Will
- Healthcare Directive and Healthcare Surrogates
- Guardianship for Minors and Incapacitated persons
Probate does not have to be a costly and time-consuming process. For most people, probate is a relatively inexpensive and prompt process. This does not mean that it is not important to hire an experienced probate attorney. Our firm will guide you through the probate and estate administration.
Florida has a streamlined probate process that focuses on settling the affairs of an estate expeditiously. If you and your spouse own a property jointly, it will probably not have to go through probate. Property is rarely held up in Florida probate. Probate should be a process that transfers ownership to beneficiaries in a timely manner, while minimizing estate tax liability, and fulfilling your needs and wishes.
Additionally, there are procedures to protect homestead property from claims of creditors and others.
