A “Will” is a legal document allocating who will be beneficiaries of your estate, how and when they receive their inheritance. Any person who is 18 years of age or older and who is of sound mind may make a will. If you do not have a will, the state of Florida will determines who, if anyone is entitled to receive your estate after your death. So, it is of the up most importance that you make sure your wishes are protected in the event of your demise as to whom your assets will be allocated to and not leave that decision up to the state.
A “Living Will”, is important because if you become mentally incompetent or unable to communicate, your expressed wishes will be carried out.
Such incidences can be anything from a life destroying accident to a terminally ill disease.
