Wills

Wills
In order to assure that a person’s assets go to whom he/she wishes, the simplest estate planning document to provide for the disposition of assets is a Will.  A Will also:  allows for the appointment of an executor (call a “Personal Representative” in Florida), may give burial instructions, may create a Trust upon the death of the person creating the Will, may provide for payment of certain debts and may direct reference to other documents.  Having a Will relieves the beneficiaries of the decedent from having to prove their entitlement to the assets titled in the decedent’s name.   A Will does not become effective until the death of the person who created the Will.

Living Wills
This document is used to direct that artificial prolongment of life be withheld or terminated, at the direction of a person named by the person creating the document.
