Estate Planning & Probate Areas
Florida Estate Planning
No one lives forever, and tomorrow isn’t guaranteed. While you still have the chance, it is important to take the great opportunity to get your affairs in order. Anyone who wishes that the assets are passed after they die to the loved ones should consider creating a structured estate plan. If you are unable to speak for yourself, this valuable collection of legal tools will make it easier for your family to ensure that your desires and needs are met.
The process of estate planning includes: setting and identifying goals; becoming familiar with the legal terms, tools, and basic rules of Estate tax; collecting the necessary information; designing, drafting, and executing a personalized estate plan that achieves individually tailored outcomes.
Dying Intestate in Florida
In Florida, if you die without an estate plan, known as “dying intestate,” everything is subject to probate in your estate. According to Florida law and a judge’s discretion, this court-supervised process identifies your assets, pays your unpaid debts, and distributes the remaining assets to your beneficiaries. Probate can be lengthy, exhausting, and costly. A large portion of the family’s inheritance will be spent on lawyers’ fees and legal expenses alone.
If you hire the Law Office of John Vernon Moore, P.A., to craft a comprehensive estate plan, using the law to shield your assets from probate—and your family from unnecessary heartache—will be one of our main objectives.
