- Wills: A will is a written document that identifies how your property will be distributed and who you would like to provide for the care of minor children.
- Trusts: A trust is a separate legal entity that can own property. You can transfer property into a trust while you are alive or have it transferred upon your death.
- Powers of attorney: A power of attorney gives another person the legal right to make decisions for you.
- Health care surrogate forms: A health care surrogate form can give another person the right to make medical decisions for you.
If you do not prepare and execute a will or trust, your property may be distributed according to the Florida’s intestacy laws, which may or may not be in accordance with your wishes.
