Personal Representative

Heidi assisted me in creating the customer contract for my newly launched small business in Daytona Beach. My business is unique, and I searched for an attorney that I thought would provide the most value with broad based experiences and services. I now have a great contract and I would highly recommend Heidi.

I found Heidi Webb to be very professional and very thorough while preparing my will. She is very detail oriented and brought many issues to my attention so nothing was overlooked. I walked away feeling I was very well set and would recommend her to any of my friends or family.

What happens in Florida if I die without an Estate Plan?

die without an estate plan

 

Quick answer, State law will dictate how your assets are distributed.   Assets that fall under the purview of the Probate Court without direct beneficiary designations will need to be probated and they will be distributed pursuant to the laws of intestacy.  This means that Florida law dictates who will inherit your probated assets without any other factual consideration and no concern for what your wishes may have been. This scenario can be particularly devastating when the people named under Florida law are not the people you want inheriting your estate.

Think of your Estate Plan as your instruction manual for the probate court —if you don’t have one, then Florida Statute becomes the instruction manual for your probate assets.
