A Last Will and Testament states how you want your assets and property to be distributed at death. A will can also be used to designate a preference for the guardian of any minor children you may have. Without a valid will, your estate becomes subject to Florida laws, and may not be distributed as you would like. A simple distribution plan can be created or a more complex asset distribution can be established by combining a will with a trust.
This legal document allows you to specify the type of life-sustaining procedures that you do and do not want to be used to prolong your life in a terminal or end-stage condition. This incredibly important tool becomes a great help to family members who may be challenged with making such health care decisions on your behalf.
