Oviedo Wills

Many Americans are under the mistaken belief that estate planning is only for the wealthy. At Vollrath Law, we believe that everyone needs a Will, irrespective of the amount of money they have or property they own. The document allows you to take control in planning your estate. You and your loved ones are entitled to the peace of mind that comes with proactive steps that clarify your wishes and goals.

A Will leaves your property to your designated beneficiaries. Without a Will, ever-changing Florida law makes those decisions, not you or your family. With a Will, the probate process is simplified and provides your selected representative or executor the means to dispose of your property.

It Is Time For You To Get Your Personal Documents In Order

During your free initial consultation with estate planning lawyer Stephanie Vollrath, we Will spend time with you to identify your specific objectives in drafting a Will. We Will conduct a thorough review of your current estate documents, even if they are several years old or created in another state, to ensure that they comply with Florida's requirements.

A Will is only one part of the estate planning process. Additional documents are strongly recommended, each one having their own advantages and disadvantages. Those include:

  • Durable Power of Attorney - Allows someone you designate someone to make your financial and business decisions, which includes signing contracts, deeds, tax returns and other documents.
  • Heath Care Surrogate - Also known as a health care proxy or health care power of attorney, you designate someone to make medical decisions for you when you are unable to communicate your wishes.
  • Living Will - Establishes your wishes when you are dying and cannot express them. You make the decisions regarding end-of-life care, including nutrition, artificial respiration, resuscitation or medication to relieve pain that also may hasten death.

Seminole County Trusts

A living trust is another valuable estate planning tool. It can be employed to avoid the expense of and offers more privacy the probate process. However, you need to have a skilled and experienced attorney at your side in order to create or amend valid and effective trust.

Simply stated, it is time to plan your estate the way you want it done.
