If a loved one is incapacitated, many do not know what to do

According to most studies, few people have put serious consideration into plans for the end of their lives. These decisions include not only who will receive their assets but what steps will be taken should they become incapacitated and unable to speak for themselves. In Florida, many may assume that their loved ones know what they will want or not want to happen in such cases. However, their assumptions may be very wrong.

Probate is not evil, but it can be avoided

Considering what may happen after death is something not many people like to do. However, if one does not think about these things, his or her estate may end up languishing in probate. Even worse is the thought that one's children or other heirs will fight each other in court over whatever possessions the estate holds. Some in Florida may wonder how to plan their estates to avoid such consequences, and they reach out to an attorney for advice.

Florida families are still putting off estate planning

It always happens to somebody else, not me. This is what many people think when it comes to winning the lottery. However, based on the fact that only 42 percent of people in Florida and across the country have completed their estate planning, it seems that many also feel this way about tragedies such as catastrophic illness or sudden death.

Many in Florida procrastinate making a will

Most people procrastinate when it comes to estate planning. Creating a will may seem daunting to some in Florida. It requires one to imagine scenarios that are often heartbreaking and upsetting. However, without preparing for the future, people may leave serious questions unanswered and decisions unmade.
