Sarasota Wills Attorneys
Plan for the Future with Advocates in Aging
Wills can provide much more than just identifying who gets what after you have passed away. Wills are an essential element of estate planning and are a lot more versatile than people think. Establishing a will can benefit anyone, even if you also use a living trust and in Sarasota are standing by to answer any questions you may have. Since 1983, our wills lawyers at Advocates in Aging has been helping clients plan for the future and gain the peace of mind that comes from knowing their estate is secure.
What You Can Do with a Will
It is never too late to begin planning for the future, and there are many reasons you should consider establishing a will now. You also do not need to wait for your retirement to develop a will. Wills are flexible and can be drawn up in a personalized manner, designed to meet your personal needs. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to will drafting, and our estate planning lawyers can help you prepare a new will or update an existing will.
With a will, you can:
- Establish guardians for minor children or children with special needs
- Establish long-term care plans
- Identify who will receive what assets and property
- Name specific Personal Representatives (executors) and trustees
- Establish trusts for beneficiaries
- Set out your funeral and burial wishes
- Plan for estate taxes and other financial issues
If you have specific ideas on how you want your estate administered and divided after your death, you might want to consider establishing a will. For example, you may want to leave money to your children, but you do not want them to inherit it all at once. Alternatively, you may wish to be cremated, and want to ensure your loved ones know. All of these things can be laid out in a will, ensuring that your wishes are known and honored.
We Can Help with Contested Wills
Contested wills are not common but when someone’s Will was coerced or unduly influenced, contest may be appropriate. Do you need to contest a will, or are you associated with a will that is being challenged? It is prudent to speak with experienced legal counsel to ensure your rights are protected. Our Sarasota wills lawyers have extensive experience handling contested wills and can put that experience to work for you.
Whether it is designing your new will or contesting someone else’s, our mission is to help clients understand their options and assist them to enforce their rights and protect their assets.
