Making a will is one of the most important things you can do to make sure your family is ok after your demise, and to ensure that your estate is distributed to those people that you would like to gift it to. Probate planning is vital as well, to ensure that your debts and taxes are paid, and to ensure that your final affairs will be dealt with appropriately. Here are some of the main reasons why you should consider working with a probate attorney.
1. Help in Preventing Personal Liability for Your Executor
Personal liabilities can come up in any probate situation whenever an executor makes an error in paying creditors, generating reports, organizing assets, or in any of the other duties they are assigned. Planning your wishes in advance with a Florida probate attorney will help your executor when the time comes.
2. Speed Up the Process
Many estates can drag out in probate court for years. The best way to avoid this is to ensure that you plan in advance. You can make your debts known, your heirs known, and can take care of other matters to ensure that your attorney and executor can complete the probate process as quickly as possible.
3. Help in Reducing Stress on Family Members
Losing a loved one is hard enough, and dealing with probate matters can cause a lot of stress. If you preplan the process with an experienced probate attorney, then the process will be much easier on your loved ones and your executor. Planning will give you peace of mind that your entire estate will be handled the way you would like for it to be handled.
