Helping Florida Residents with Estate Plans
Estate planning might seem like an overwhelming process, but that doesn’t have to be the case. It’s important that you take the steps necessary to ensure your family will be taken care of should something unexpected happen to you. The Morris Law Firm strives to make the process as easy and efficient as possible. Estate planning is simply creating a plan that protects you and your property while living, and also provides for how to distribute your assets upon your death. Having this estate plan in place can put your mind at ease now and can save your loved ones a lot of trouble later.
An estate plan includes, but is not limited to:
Will – A will, also known as a last will and testament, contains instructions as to how your assets will be distributed and who will manage the distribution after you pass away.
Power of Attorney – A power of attorney is a document that identifies and authorizes another to act on your behalf in dealing with your business, financial, or personal affairs and even includes the ability for another to act on your behalf in legal matters. For instance, a durable power of attorney allows you to authorize someone to buy and sell real estate or write checks on your behalf.
Health Care Surrogate – This authorizes another person the ability to make decisions about your medical care should you reach a point that you are unable to do so due to incapacity.
Living Will – This document allows you to establish your future health care plans and medical needs should you reach the point that you are unable to do so.
At The Morris Law Firm, we will help you develop a comprehensive estate plan tailored to you and your family’s needs. These documents for end-of-life estate planning can be a huge benefit to everyone, regardless of how large or how small your assets are.
