There are a number of mistakes that can be made when it comes to estate planning that can land you and your family in probate, facing exorbitant legal fees and estate taxes. Working with an experienced estate planning attorney when planning for the future can avoid unnecessary hassles for your loved ones after you are gone.
One of the biggest myths about estate planning is that you only need to do it if you have a significant number of assets and/or children. In reality, everyone needs an estate plan in order to ensure that their wishes are fulfilled, even if that includes leaving their estate to their favorite charity. If you die without a valid will in place, the State of Florida decides who benefit from your estate without regard to your wishes.
Some people create a plan but fail to update it as their circumstances — or even the laws — change, which happens on a regular basis. Your estate planning attorney can help you keep your plan aligned with your changing needs.
