Quality Legal Guidance For Wills And Estate Documents
Living well and passing on your life assets in the manner you prefer is not an accident. It is the result of purposeful planning, and declaring your intentions, in writing, in terms that are unmistakable. At Lins Law Group, P.A., of Tampa, we have helped hundreds of individuals achieve peace by documenting these intentions. We mention just three of these areas here.
1. Will Attorney
If you die without a will, the state of Florida will decide where your assets go. That is not why you worked all your life, to have a cookie-cutter distribution method imposed on you. It is much better to make your wishes known and unarguable with a clear, comprehensive will!
2. Advance Directives
Who will make decisions for you as you get older? These documents will spell out your wishes:
- A living will specifies what life-extending care you want and what kind you don’t want if you are in a terminal or end-stage condition. Creating a living will is a great gift to your family, who should not have to make these heartbreaking decisions on your behalf.
- Powers of attorney allow you to designate who can make medical decisions for you (health care power of attorney) and who can make financial decisions (financial or durable power of attorney).
3. Special Needs Trusts
People with special needs often rely on Social Security and Medicaid for essential assistance. A special needs trust can provide for a person’s other needs, such as a residence and various other financial benefits, without the risk of losing access to the government programs.
