If you pass away without a Will, your property will be distributed according to Florida intestacy laws that will disregard your personal wishes. Thus, a Last Will and Testament can help you protect your family and your property after you pass away.
Common Uses and Benefits of a Will include:
- Designating your belongings and property to specific individuals and organizations
- Naming a personal guardian to care for your minor children
- Naming a trusted person to manage assets to raise your minor children
- Designating a Personal Representative to make sure that the terms of your will are carried out according to your wishes.
In addition to the creation of your Last Will and Testament, at Bulluck Law Group, our Tampa estate planning attorneys help our clients with ongoing changes of their wishes after the creation of their Will. This is called a codicil. Instead of creating a new Will, we help draft codicils to amend, add or delete only those specific provisions you want changed.
