Estate Planning For Young Families
If you or your spouse passes away, the impact on surviving family members can be significant from both an emotional and financial perspective. A comprehensive estate plan can help minimize this impact by securing assets for your family, facilitating the probate process and establishing guardianships for your children. In addition, should an accident or illness leave you disabled, a living will or health care proxy can make end-of-life decisions much less difficult for your family.
We’ve been helping families establish estate plans that protect their loved ones for more than 40 years. We regularly consult with financial planners, tax experts and other professionals to create customized estate plans that meet the unique needs of our clients.
Planning For An Unexpected Death In The Family
Regardless of how much or how little you have earned in your lives together so far, your present and future interests should be protected and projected to a time when your children will be making their own ways in the world. Your children will thank you for the time you devoted to your estate planning today. We can explain all the tools that will help you, including:
We have served the estate planning needs of young and old throughout Florida for more than 40 years and we will help you plan for your future.
Living For Today And Tomorrow In Florida
As experienced attorneys, the most important thing that I could ever tell a young couple with small children is that your estate planning is as important to your growing family’s long-term future as your house or car payments, life insurance policies or retirement plans are in the here and now.
Part of your commitment to your family involves living for today, yes, but also providing for the future. Discussing your estate planning priorities before visiting our offices should be something to be enjoyed, not avoided. The naming of guardians and beneficiaries, or recipients of a transfer of property, can be approached with creativity. And our many younger estate planning clients will tell you that the subject does not have to be morbid just because it is based on mortality. It can be a labor of love that starts with optimism and ends with total peace of mind.
In between, there will be changes in your estate and estate plan changes to match the positive ones in your life. The document grows as your hopes, dreams and children do. We look forward to helping you with those revisions and updates.
The Gift Of Financial Security
We often hear expense used as a reason that young families give for postponing estate planning. Another reason is that parents are too busy with family obligations to make a plan. However, just a small investment of your time can bring incredible peace of mind to you and your family. As for costs, you may be surprised to discover how affordable a quality estate plan can be.
