Estate planning is the process of planning the distribution of your tangible and intangible property upon death, and may also include planning for your potential incapacity. No matter what your net worth is, it is important to have an estate plan in place to be certain that your family is provided for in the event of your death or incapacity.
At The Law Office of Annalie Alvarez, we guide you in identifying your present and potential assets, and prepare a last will and testament that will distribute said assets according to your expressed desire.
Who Can Benefit From Estate Planning
Many individuals are under the misconception that estate planning is unnecessary when there is a living spouse as they will “automatically inherit” all the assets of the couple. In some cases, that may not be the decedent’s intent, or in the best interest of the surviving spouse. Cases of blended families require clear directives to ensure that every family member, old and new, understands and receives the percentages intended for each heir.
Preneed guardianships are especially compelling when you have a history of Alzheimer’s in the family. It is paramount to have these documents drafted well before a diagnosis. This document is also important when you have minor children, as it gives the parent peace of mind that they have chosen their minor children’s guardian in case of an untimely death or incapacity whether permanent or temporary.
The state of Florida has specific requirements for the preparation of testamentary documents, and it is paramount that you have an attorney draft these documents for you to ensure your intent is properly communicated.
