Secure Your Family's Future in Orlando - Contact Us Today!

Many people in Orlando and throughout Florida share a common misconception that estate planning is only for the wealthy. Florida's estate tax at the state level was eliminated nearly a decade ago. The federal estate tax as of 2012, applies only in cases in which the total value of the estate is in excess of $5.25 million. If your own assets add up to less than this amount, why should you worry about implementing an estate planning strategy?

The fact is: Estate planning is for anyone who is concerned about his or her heirs enjoying the full benefits of inheritance without facing copious amounts of stress and anxiety.

When to Start Estate Planning?

Woman planning estate with estate planning attorneySo when is the right time to start estate planning? Did you know that many Americans pass away without estate planning or a will? It is common for individuals oftentimes feel that they don't need to start estate planning just yet. The truth is that you should start planning an estate as soon as you become a legal adult. When you turn 18, you become responsible for finances, healthcare, and power of attorney, so it is important have everything planned out appropriately regarding the future so that everything is accounted for appropriately.

Without a will or setting up a trust, you are risking loosing the assets that you leave behind, as they will be distributed according to the arbitrary dictates of state law. Unfortunately, this leaves you without a say as to what happens to all of your assets in the case that you pass away. The process may easily get bogged down in probate, and you risk leaving your loved ones with less than what you would have planned (due to probate costs), or having them wait longer than necessary to receive what you feel they deserve regarding inheritance.

Estate plans should also be updated every 3 - 5 years afterward to ensure that it is consistent.
