Are You Ready To Write Your Estate Plan?
For most, that’s a hard question to answer. How does anyone get “ready” to write an estate plan? However, readiness isn’t exactly the right concept. You need to realize that it is time for your estate plan. That’s when you should reach out.
At Rita Law Firm, P.A., our attorney and her team build strong, reliable estate plans for people from Wellington, Port St. Lucie and all over Florida. She stands out as having insight into interstate and international estate planning matters. She is forward-thinking and insightful about the matters facing your estate plan.
Interstate And International Estate Planning
The population in Florida tends to trend older and includes many transplants from New York, New England and some countries in South America. This is because Florida has especially friendly estate planning laws, and asset protection is somewhat simpler here.
However, the relative advantages of Florida estate planning demand the attention of a careful estate planning lawyer. Our attorney can guide you through matters involving:
- Power of attorney
- Advance directives
She can also answer your questions about how your Florida assets may interact with an out-of-state estate plan in a process known as ancillary administration. Florida has complex laws around ancillary administration that can be confusing without having a local attorney on your side.
Help With Special Needs Trusts
When you have a loved one who needs a special level of care because of a disability, you do what you have to do. You take every step you can to provide the care they need.
A special needs trust can be an enormous benefit to loved ones with disabilities. There are two main scenarios that you may use it for:
- Providing a person with a disability with a supplemental income without jeopardizing their Social Security benefits
- Managing finances for minor children or individuals with substance abuse problems
Our attorney at Rita Law Firm, P.A., can provide you with insight into these tools and help you craft them for the future.
