Estate Planning

The term “estate” is the legal term given to all your assets once you have passed away. The term “assets” means the property you own and control such as real estate, stocks, bonds, cash, etc. Assets can be tangible or intangible. Estate planning is the creation of a plan or an arrangement which governs your assets during your lifetime and allows the orderly disposition of your estate after your death.

Estate Administration

A Trust Administration generally occurs when a parent dies with a Trust in place, at death. Assets must be titled to the Trust to avoid probate. Creditors, taxes, and other expenses must be paid before beneficiaries receive their shares. Both procedures are governed by Florida Statutes.
