Fort Lauderdale Estate Planning Attorneys
Estate planning is not only for the wealthy, it is important for everyone who is concerned about where their assets will end up upon their demise. If your estate is small, you may simply focus on who will receive your assets after your death, and who should manage your estate, pay your last debts and handle the distribution of your assets. If your estate is large, your lawyer will also discuss various ways of preserving your assets for your beneficiaries and of reducing or postponing the amount of estate tax which otherwise might be payable after your death. Wouldn’t you like to have the peace of mind of knowing your spouse, home, life savings and family, as well as your legacy, are protected?

The law provides that at the exact time of death, all the property of the decedent is automatically and immediately transferred to a legal entity referred to as the “decedent’s estate”. This estate can own property in any jurisdiction, domestic or international, state or federal, and the property itself can be of any variety. Real estate, checking accounts, savings accounts, all forms of investment including stocks and other securities, life insurance policies and personal property, such as cars, furniture, and clothing, can be part of the estate.
Estate planning prepares for more than financial and property matters: it allows for decision-making in advance on the type of medical care someone wants to receive should they become incapacitated and unable to decide for themselves. It also allows for pre-planning (and pre-payment) of your funeral arrangements and their related expenses.
