Why work all your life to accomplish your goals and never plan what happens to the assets that you have obtained? Florida law allows its residents to plan their estate for whenever they are no longer with us. An estate plan allows you determine how to distribute your property among your beneficiaries, in a way that best fits your needs. You and your attorney can be very creative in how to distribute your properties and what conditions can be imposed upon your beneficiaries.
An organized estate plan allows you to ease the tax path for your beneficiaries, and avoid future unnecessary issues among your loved ones.
In addition, Florida law allows you create a healthcare surrogate which allows you to determine who will be the person in charge of making healthcare decisions on your behalf in the case of a healthcare condition that renders you incapable of making your own decisions. A healthcare surrogate is a legal document founded in privacy principles because our law wants to protect such an intimate and personal decision, or to be done by one you choose, because your health condition decisions should be make by you and not left to a stranger.
