Estate and Probate Planning
Anyone who has suffered the loss of a parent, spouse or close relative is likely to realize the benefits of working with a trusted legal representative to facilitate the process of estate planning and the execution of a will. When a family is grieving, the last thing they want to do is hash out the details of their loved one’s estate. That’s why we offer services to prepare estate plans and simplify the probate process, providing peace of mind for your family.
It’s not surprising that many choose to put off the task of planning for their estate. Making arrangements for one’s death or incapacity is uncomfortable for most, but it’s a necessity in order to ensure that your wishes are executed once you’ve passed away. Our legal team will serve as a neutral party to walk you through the entire process to make it as simple and comfortable as possible.
The process of validating a will and granting probate to the executor can be lengthy depending on several variables. The deceased’s financial situation, the relationship between the family members, and local regulations such as Florida’s homestead exemption laws may all play a role in determining how complicated the probate process may be. From notifying creditors and publishing notices to resolving legal disputes, there are many steps to take. Having a legal team to rely on allows your family to rest assured knowing everything is being handled properly.
