Harnessing the Power of Estate Planning Tools
A will is for protecting and distributing assets and funds as you see fit. Making statements to your family members is not enough. After you pass on, it is advisable to have a will that details your wants and needs precisely.
If you pass on without a will, the government will decide how to divide your assets. This is akin to leaving your assets to chance. You have worked hard to earn for your family throughout your life. In situations like this, many people want to be sure that their families are taken care of.
A death in the family can be a trying time. Effective estate planning can reduce family conflict during an emotionally charged period, decrease your tax burden, and help your beneficiaries avoid a costly and time-consuming probate trial.
We understand that estate planning is a fluid process. Your circumstances change – and so should your will. Divorces, marriages, births, and deaths mean that a will should be updated. The Berman Law Group can attend to your changing needs.
Special Needs Planning
When a member of your family has special needs, there is a great deal of responsibility when it comes to caring for him or her and meeting medical and financial needs. Trusts are designed to distribute money and assets to those who need it.
Having a plan in place for your family member with special needs is the best way to make certain that their medical, custodial, and financial needs will be met. Wills can assign guardianship of someone with special needs. Not choosing a guardian or letting the state assign a guardian may create unnecessary conflict.
There are other considerations when discussing planning for people with special needs. People with special needs can receive government benefits, such as Social Security, that are often vital to their healthcare. If an individual is the beneficiary of a lump sum or receives valuable assets, then your assistance may be at risk. The Berman Law Group has the experience and skill to deal with these issues.
Benefits & Appeals
Unfortunately, not all wills and trusts are as solid as the ones we draft. When conflicts arise over who should be a beneficiary and how much they should receive, the attorneys of The Berman Law Group can help.
There may be loopholes or mistakes in the will. Our Florida estate planning lawyers have experience with this field of law, and we can help you receive a fair amount. The death of a loved one often leads to a heightened sense of tension and the possibility of emotional conflict. Our firm can assist you.
