Planning on a Living Will?
Writing a will is necessary regardless of the size of your estate. Regardless of whether you’re a millionaire or have modest assets, proper estate planning can help your estate avoid expensive legal pitfalls like probate court. Even if you already have a will, some situations that demand you modify it. A legal addendum, called a codicil, can make quick and simple changes to your estate plan. Also, a document called a living will can set forth specific instructions about your medical care if you become incapacitated. While you may think that a will alone can ensure the proper distribution of your assets, that’s not always the case. Once you die, you’ll need an administrator, called an executor, to carry out the actions your will specifies. At the Law Office of Jane Park, we help clients near the Ormond Beach, FL area with guidance on these issues.
