Estate Planning Has Never Been More Important

Preserving and protecting your assets for your chosen beneficiaries and reducing the amount of estate tax the government may collect are critical reasons to establish or update your estate plan.

Estate planning will involve assessing your family’s future needs, your assets and property, and the various forms of ownership and titles of your assets. Estate planning also addresses your own future needs in case you are suddenly unable to care for yourself. In addition, an estate plan will help you avoid the risk of family disputes, costly court expenses, or your assets being distributed according to state laws rather than your wishes.

Attorney Eric S. Kane provides personalized assistance as you focus on determining who you will choose to handle your financial affairs or make health care decisions if you suddenly become incapacitated while you are alive. Mr. Kane will also help you carefully tailor distribution of your assets and determine how best to manage providing for your family or other charitable groups of interest upon your death.

Probate And Trust Administration

There are several types of probate administration in Florida, depending on the nature of the decedent’s estate planning documents. If there are none, probate can be confusing for families. Not all assets are subject to the Florida probate process. Typically, property in a revocable trust, life insurance policies, and bank accounts with named beneficiaries or transfer on death (TOD) designation are not subject to probate. Speaking with an experienced attorney as soon as possible after the death of your loved one can make a world of difference in the time it takes to handle matters on their behalf. The law office of Eric S. Kane, P.L., provides probate representation for clients throughout the state of Florida.
