Over the years, I’ve often heard people comment ”I don’t need an estate plan because I don’t have an estate to plan”. However, estate planning is essentially protecting your legacy, and everyone has a legacy to leave. Depending on your circumstances, that legacy may involve family, loved ones, friends, or even a cause that is near and dear to your heart. I want to help you plan how best to make sure your loved ones are not needlessly burdened at the time of your passing, and that your legacy is used according to your wishes. This planning process may start as soon as you start your family and extend well into your “golden years”. I would be honored to be your trusted adviser in that planning process.

Legacy Protection and Life Care Planning

Wills and Trust

Don’t leave your loved ones in legal limbo when you’re gone. Failure to leave a Last Will and Testamentmeants the State of Florida will decide how you assets are distributed. Under Florida law, if you die without a Will, your estate will be distributed to your next of kin in a very specific order which is determined by who survives you, which could be your spouse or your third cousin, twice removed. Without a will, your estate could even be taken by the state!

Probate and Guardianship

Probate is the process that implements the estate plan you created while you were alive. In the State of Florida, if you pass away owning assets that are titled solely in your name, those assets must be re-titled into the name of someone who is still living so that ownership can continue. The probate process is the means by which those assets are re-titled. Probate is better avoided through quality estate planning, but we can help you navigate the probate process if necessary and help your heirs avoid it in the first place.

Legacy Protection

Legacy protection is something that you should be planning your whole life. It may involve some aspects of what is called “elder law”, but the legal tools available in this planning process can benefit you and your loved ones well before you’re gone. People engage in legacy planning for a variety of reasons: perhaps you or your spouse has received a medical diagnosis that threatens to reduce your assets significantly, you want to provide for someone that has special medical needs or issues with finances or substance abuse, you want to make sure your grandchildren can enjoy a better quality of life with your financial assistance, or you have a special organization or cause you want to help through your legacy. Depending on your particular challenge or goal, Bass Law Group can help you explore which options will best suit your individual circumstances.

Life Care Planning

Life care planning involves deciding who will make financial, legal or healthcare decisions for you when you can no longer make those decisions yourself. By implementing a durable power of attorney, which allows another person to make legal and financial decisions for you, and a healthcare surrogate designation, which allows another person to make your medical decisions for you, you and your family are protected from the uncertainty of the guardianship process in which the Court system appoints someone to manage your healthcare, legal and financial affairs. Not only are guardianships expensive, but you have no control over who will be appointed to take care of your needs. Make the decisions that are best for yourself and your family before the state decides for you!
