Wills in St. Petersburg, Florida

Florida Wills

A will gives you the opportunity to say which people you want to take care of and how you want to take care of them once you pass away. It is a chance to create a security blanket for your family. You can either have a will that is created specifically to reflect your own personal wishes for your family or you can have the “one size fits all” default will that the State of Florida gives you if you don’t take the initiative to have your own personal will put in place. If you pass away with your own personal will, you are said to have died testate. If you die with the State of Florida default will, you are said to have died intestate.

The thought of creating a will may be overwhelming because of the unfamiliar terms and concepts involved. At Edwards Elder Law P.A., we break the process of creating a will down into manageable steps and personally guide you through each step. We utilize fixed pricing for our assistance in creating a will whenever possible so that you can have the luxury of working step by step through the process at your own pace and can ask questions at each step of the way.

Drafting a Will

Creating a will is like designing a car. You get to choose the model and the color. You get to say what things will be packed into the trunk of the car for distribution once you pass away. You get to map out the car’s route so that the driver of the car will know who to deliver the things packed in the trunk to. You also get to designate the driver of your car. This designated driver is called the Personal Representative (Executor).

The only thing you can’t do with your car while you are alive is buy tires for it. So it has to sit in storage until you pass away. Once you pass away, the designated driver (Personal Representative/Executor) has to buy tires for the car before he or she can drive it and make your deliveries. The only tire store in town is the probate court so the Personal Representative has to go to the probate court to buy tires for your car. Once your Personal Representative buys tires, the probate court and probate attorney help the Personal Representative to drive the car along the route you mapped out and to navigate through any unplanned detours.

Just like a car needs regular oil changes and tune ups to make sure it won’t malfunction when you need it the most, wills also need regular maintenance for optimal performance. At Edwards Elder Law P.A., we can guide you through the steps necessary to keep your will up to date and protecting your family according to your wishes.
