Our firm has experience working with families and senior citizens who wish to draft an effective estate plan that fully encompasses their wishes and needs.

Why You Need an Estate Plan in Florida

The sooner you start planning, the more options may be available to you. Estate planning is crucial because Florida has a default estate plan for everyone. If you don't create your own customized plan for your family and your specific wishes, then you and your family will be stuck with the plan that the state has put in place for you.

The outcome of a default estate plan could be very different from what a person would actually want, especially in situations involving single people, unmarried couples and couples in second marriages with children from previous relationships.

What You Need In Your Estate Plan

You can find peace of mind though a well-drafted estate plan. We can work with you to determine your specific goals and what assets or concerns you need to address now in the event of your incapacity or passing in the future.

We can address the following issues with you as they pertain to your circumstances and needs:

  • Naming beneficiaries
  • Inheritance of property and assets
  • Pets
  • Funeral wishes
  • Long-term care medical planning
  • Incapacity planning
  • End-of-life medical planning
  • Care for disabled individuals
  • Long-term care insurance
  • The probate process
  • Creating a legal safety net for a significant other if you are unmarried

By planning ahead, you can make sure that you are in charge of your legacy, not the state. We can break the estate planning process down into manageable steps for you so that it doesn't seem so overwhelming. Our goal is to help you achieve peace of mind.

When to Update Your Estate Plan

Estate planning is an ongoing process that enables you to prepare as much as possible for the future. You need to update your estate planning documents, such as your durable power of attorney, regularly to reflect changes in your family and circumstances. Another reason to update your durable power of attorney is that changes in Florida law have made durable powers of attorney that were created before October 2011 potentially not as effective as they once were.

We can fully explain your options so that you can make wise decisions based on what you own, who you want to take care of, and how you want to take care of them. Our assistance can help reduce the stress and anxiety associated with these decisions and responsibilities.

We can also help you plan how you want your estate to be settled. If you are interested in learning more about us and how Edwards Elder Law, P.A. can help you, we encourage you to contact us today and schedule a complimentary consultation.
