Drafting a will is an incredibly important but often overlooked life task. A will allows you to determine where your hard earned money, property, and assets are going. Not having one leaves your family at risk or losing all of those benefits if you leave the government to decide your post-mortem plans.
- Simple will: A basic will that determines who will receive your assets upon your death.
- Revocable living trust: This important document gives one of your loved ones the ability to direct how you should be supported if you should become incapacitated. It can also give direction on how to distribute your wealth after your death.
- Special needs trust: One of these documents will allow your special needs loved one to receive your assets without prohibiting them from qualifying for government benefits.
- Living will: A living will allows you to continue sovereignty over your health care decisions even if you are unable to verbalize those decisions in the future.
- Durable power of attorney: Drafting this document helps determine the outcomes of your property and assets if you were to become incapacitated and avoid a guardianship hearing in a court setting.
- Health care surrogate: In Florida, you can designate someone to make health care decisions on your behalf when you are unable to do so. This appointment also allows this person to decide when to cease medical procedures.
