Safeguard Your Legacy

Is Your Estate Planning On Track?

Life throws a lot at you. The worst thing to do is to not have a plan that addresses the worst-case scenarios that impact your family and close friends. At TK Law, our estate planning attorneys represent individuals and families throughout Orlando and Central Florida in all aspects of business succession planning, estate planning and we can even help with administering a probate estate. While putting one’s personal affairs in order in the event of death is a topic that many wish to avoid, the careful planning of your estate is important.

There is no specific age or time when you should prepare an estate plan. However, it is crucial to start thinking about and talking about an estate plan as soon as you have assets and loved ones that you want to protect in the event of your passing or incapacity. Without question, we recommend an estate plan for individuals with minor children, significant assets, or a complex family situation (think blended family or estranged relatives).

It is essential to review and update your estate plan periodically to ensure it aligns with your current needs, wishes, and circumstances. Working with an experienced estate planning attorney can help ensure that your plan is comprehensive and tailored to your specific needs.

Estate Planning

Wills

A Last Will and Testament states how you want your assets and property to be distributed at death. A Last Will and Testament can also be used to appoint a guardian for your minor children. Without a valid Last Will and Testament, the laws of the State of Florida will substitute your wishes. This increases the risk that your estate and assets will not be distributed in a manner satisfactory to you.

Living Will

and “Healthcare Surrogate” – together, these documents handle end life decisions. Sometimes called an “Advanced Healthcare Directive, this legal document allows you to specify the type of life-sustaining procedures that you do and do not want to be used to prolong your life in a terminal or end-stage condition. This incredibly important tool becomes a great help to family members who may be challenged with making such health care decisions on your behalf.

Probate

The distribution of your estate under a Last Will and Testament is controlled by a formal legal process called probate, and is administered via Florida probate court in the county in which you (the maker of the will) reside. While there are many pitfalls to a probate action there can be benefits to filing a probate action. TK Law can help you administer an estate in probate court or avoid it all together because our Firm assists in the administration of estates of all types, sizes, and complexities.

Trusts

A robust estate planning tool, a trust expresses your specific orders and directions regarding how your assets are to be handled and distributed. Unlike a Last Will and Testament, trusts are private documents and are not filed with the probate court. A common saying amongst estate planning attorneys is that a “Revocable Living Trust is King” as it can be used in estate planning as a way to avoid Florida probate. We can also help you establish and fund a revocable living trust, which allows you to name yourself as the trustee complete control over and access to the trust while you are living.

Powers of Attorney

A Power of Attorney or “POA” is a document that bestows upon a person of your choosing the legal right to act on your behalf in all manner of legal and business matters, when you cannot be present. There are various powers of attorney that may be beneficial to you.
