Do you know what would happen to your property and loved ones in the event of your death? This question can be a hard one to face, but it’s something everyone should think about.
One of the best things you can do for yourself and your family is to have a Last Will and Testament/trust. Not having a will can cause costly and complicated battles of property distribution and child timesharing. A will ensures that your wishes are met, and gives you peace of mind in knowing that your loved ones are cared for.
If you need a probate lawyer in Coral Springs, Ron Luzim can help. Our legal team will guide you through all of your estate planning needs including:
- Last Will & Testament – A legal document that names who will manage the estate, and provides instruction for distribution of property and guardianship.
- Power of Attorney/ Healthcare Surrogate – A written declaration giving someone authority to make legal and medical decisions on a person’s behalf when they are no longer able.
- Trusts – Holds property for the benefit of selected individuals, under set guidelines.
- Living Will – A legal document that states how a person’s health care and end-of-life measures are managed once they aren’t able to make decisions due to illness or incapacity.
- Guardianship – Determines who has authority to care for the property and interests of another person.
- Probate and Estate Administration – Handles the transfer and control of the property.
