Despite the many misconceptions that surround wills and trusts, you need one no matter how wealthy you are! Wills and trusts aren’t just for those who are rich; they’re for anyone who has property and assets. While planning for a future that you won’t be a part of can be difficult to think about and do, the lack of a will and trust can leave the ones you love in a stressful financial situation. We hope that you live a long and healthy life, but it’s always good to plan for the unknown so that you can protect the people who matter most to you. Call our Valrico wills and trusts lawyer today for a free consultation and learn about your next steps!
What Is A Will & Trust?
A will is a legal document that contains instructions for how your assets and property should be distributed, and with whom your minor children will end up (if you have them) in the event of your death or incapacitation.
The benefits of a will include control over what happens to the things you worked hard for and the people you love. There are several different types of wills to choose from, and our Valrico wills and trusts lawyer can help you do so according to what best suits your needs!
A trust is a legal arrangement that allows you to transfer ownership of property to the entity, the trust, itself. When you create the trust, you can also name a trustee who can hold onto and manage the trust in the interest of your assets and on behalf of your beneficiaries.
The benefits of a trust include control over your assets both now and later, as well as avoiding probate for your estate when you are gone and saving your family from stress.
Why Do I Need A Will & Trust?
When your property and assets are not properly protected by a will or trust, Florida’s intestate laws will determine how they are distributed. The major con to this is that your belongings might end up in the wrong hands, and you could leave your family in financial jeopardy as they’ll likely need to take your estate to probate court. Probate is known for being a daunting, time-consuming and expensive process that can exhaust the funds you intended to leave behind for your loved ones. Without legal documents, your family will likely be left uncertain of what your wishes were. That’s all a lot for your family to deal with when they’re already grieving a loss. That’s why it’s crucial to work with our experienced Valrico wills and trusts lawyer and remember that if you don’t make these important decisions now, the state will do it for you later.
