Probate Concerns Everyone Should Know
When a person dies, no matter who they are, their estate will go through some form of the Florida probate process. The length of the process and the impacts on your family will largely be determined by the plan you develop with your lawyer.
The Estate Planning Law Office of Mary Alice Gwynn, PA, will prepare you for the most important parts of the probate process by asking you these questions:
Do You Have a Will?
Having a certified, legal will guides the probate process. It is the clearest and most widely used way to direct your estate. Without a will, your estate will be divided according to Florida law without considering your wishes.
Who Is Your Personal Representative?
In Florida, the person who is responsible for filing forms and executing the wishes of a will is the personal representative. Choosing your personal representative and letting them understand their responsibilities will allow you to have faith in the future of your fortune.
