It’s not fun to think about death, but no one is guaranteed tomorrow. If you were to pass away today, who would inherit your house and your savings? Would your family be able to pay for your funeral? What if you have minor children – who would raise them? What about incapacitation – if you couldn’t make medical decisions for yourself, who would you want to make those calls? If you and your loved ones don’t know the answers to these important questions, you need to get an estate plan in place, today. Estate planning is the process of getting your affairs in order; specifically, it involves determining how your assets will be managed during your lifetime and distributed after your death. Because estate planning can be complicated, it’s best to work with a local estate planning attorney who can explain your options and personalize your plan to your exact needs. Attorney O. Reginald “Reggie” Osenton has been assisting clients throughout Florida with estate planning matters for over 33 years. His experience can make a difference!

Estate planning is something that people tend to put off for a few reasons. For one, life gets busy, and people often think that they’ll have more time to get their affairs in order when they’re older. If they’re not retired yet or are at the early stages of retirement, or if they’re in good health, they may procrastinate. For another thing, estate planning can seem overwhelming; it can be emotional to think about a future where you’re not able to provide for your loved ones, and it can be confusing to know how to start the estate planning process or what to include. 

“DIY” estate planning – downloading templated documents online and attempting to navigate the process on your own – has become a popular option. It can be tempting to try to save costs and time and do it yourself, but estate planning is a legal endeavor. The information you get from the internet may not be compliant with state laws, and certainly isn’t compliant with your unique goals. If your estate plan is made with mistakes, it may not be legally valid and do what you intended! That’s why working with a Florida estate planning firm can be helpful. Based on your family dynamics and financial situation, we can draft all of the customized legal documents you need to ensure that everyone you care about will be taken care of, no matter what the future holds. 

Many people think that all they need to plan for the future is a will, but a will alone won’t be enough to prevent probate (an expensive court process) and guard your hard-earned assets from creditors. There are a number of other estate planning tools you may need, and a variety of options available to you, including:

  • A last will and testament
  • A living will/advance directive
  • A joint will
  • A pour-over will
  • A revocable trust
  • An irrevocable trust
  • A special needs trust
  • A lady bird deed
  • A durable power of attorney
  • A health care proxy/surrogate 
  • And more!
