Make Your Wishes Known Via Your Will
It’s been said before, but it’s worth repeating: There is never a bad time to make sure you have a valid will in place. Estate planning is easy to overlook when everything is going well for you and your family. However, having a plan in place for your family’s well-being and security is important to consider even if it seems like an abundance of caution at the time. A sudden accident or illness could leave your family struggling with financial and legal issues that could be prevented via a will.
At Fischler, Friedman, & Bennett, P.A., we have helped many clients develop a comprehensive estate planning strategy so that they can have peace of mind in case an unfathomable tragedy should occur. Florida residents can also avoid the drawn-out process of challenging a poorly written or disreputable will — or of feeling helpless when a loved one dies without a will and the distribution of assets is left to a stranger appointed by a court.
It’s For Those Who Are Left Behind
Devising a will has the effect of making sure your wishes are made known to the people left behind. This is important not just for dividing financial assets or possessions, but also for crucial issues such as detailing how dependents — especially children — are to be cared for in the event of your passing. Nobody would want these decisions left to someone who doesn’t know you or your family. A will can ensure that these matters are dealt with according to the plan you put in place.
