Matzah ball soup, a.k.a. the Jewish penicillin, is believed to be the “cure-all” to whatever ails you. But remember, you don’t need to be sick to enjoy a good matzah ball soup. That very same idea also applies to estate planning.
Many Floridians believe “I have plenty of time, and I will deal with my estate when the time comes.” And even more common, “Only old people need estate plans.” If you don’t wait until you’re sick to enjoy a good matzah ball soup, why wait for tragedy to approach or strike to plan for the future? Unfortunately, by then, it may be too late. An estate plan is not just about death. Whether you are still at the early part of your earning potential, have young children to worry about, or concerned with reducing the possible estate tax or probate mess, accomplishing these goals as quickly as possible is crucial. Like a good matzah ball soup, yourself and your loved ones deserve to enjoy the comfort of an estate plan during both the good times and the more challenging times.
Estate planning is an especially dynamic legal field. A “living trust” is the trust category most commonly employed for estate planning purposes. The two main living trust subcategories are “revocable” and “irrevocable.” As the respective terms imply, the Grantor may revoke the former type of trust at any point during his or her lifetime. Different trusts feature different legal requirements, and are designed to serve various purposes. Moreover, individual circumstances change over time that may dramatically affect your ideal estate planning strategy. A qualified lawyer should prepare all living trusts. Indeed, the Florida Supreme Court has decreed that the preparation of living trusts by any party other than a licensed Florida attorney constitutes the unauthorized practice of law. Consult a competent, qualified estate planning attorney in Florida today. Do not delay taking affirmative steps to secure the best future for yourself and your loved ones another moment.
