Estate planning can be a problem if you do not seek professional advice from a Florida Estate Planning Attorney. Caring for elderly parents or yourself in advanced years only becomes more difficult, which is why pre-planning for life care is so important for persons of all ages. If a younger person becomes incapacitated or dies, there will also be issues of health care or estate distribution.
Attorney Joseph W. Lehn is an experienced Florida Estate Planning Attorney with offices in Port Charlotte and Sarasota, Florida. His area of legal experience centers on Estate issues, Life Care Planning, Medicaid planning and creating of other final legal documents like Wills, Trusts and Powers of Attorney.
Many new issues arise with advancing age. You may have assets and property that you wish to have preserved for distribution to heirs without excessive losses in taxes and fees. If you do not have a will when you die, the probate court will appoint someone to execute and distribute your estate. This is a costly and time consuming process that only decreases the value of your estate. Even if you have a will, it must go into probate to verify the validity of that document, which is why you need the assistance of a qualified attorney to draw up your will.
In addition to property concerns, elderly persons must face health issues, Social Security determinations and Medicaid or V.A. planning.
