Depending on the value of your assets, a trust may be a better option for your estate planning. Trusts typically do not have to go through the Florida probate system; making it easier for your heirs to access your assets.
We can help you draft a trust that meets your needs. When you use a trust, you can transfer most, if not all, of your assets into the trust during your lifetime. Until the time you become incapacitated or die, the assets are fully controlled by you. At the time of incapacity or death, the successor trustee then is tasked with following the directives you lay out in the trust agreement.
Couples with children, those who have a business, or those who have a significant estate may wish to consider a Florida trust to protect their assets. Contact The Law Office of Shannan M. Field, PA if you wish to learn more or discuss your options. We are located in Titusville and provide services in the Space Coast and surrounding areas.
