A will provides for the administration of property through the probate process. It also directs disposition of assets after the payment of your debts and probate expenses. A will specifically provides for gifts, may creates trusts, names a guardian to care for your minor children and names persons to administer your estate and trusts.
Choose Advance Care Directives
Estate planning should also include documents related to your future medical care. What would happen if you are no longer able to make health care decisions? From severe illness to injury, a number of things can occur that would render you unable to make decisions regarding your health. In these situations, having an advanced care directive in place can save your family from having to seek court intervention for help. You can designate a health care surrogate, who can act on your behalf if you become unable to make medical decisions yourself.
What Is a Living Trust?
Florida law allows many types of trusts. Generally, property that you transfer to a trust during your lifetime will avoid probate upon your death. A Trust Agreement contains provisions governing the disposition of your property. A Trust provides for gifts, can create additional trusts, names successor trustees, and sets forth your instructions.
A Durable Power of Attorney
A power of attorney grants another person the right to act on your behalf, as if you were present and acting, with respect to your assets and property rights. The power you grant can be limited to only specific authorized acts or can authorize authority over everything.
