After accumulating assets and building relationships over a lifetime, you deserve to determine how your property will be allocated once you pass away. Without a sound will, however, everything you’ve earned could be distributed according to the state’s priorities, not yours. At the Law Office of Kimberly A. Schulte, LLC in Leesburg, I draw on more than 25 years of experience drafting wills and constructing comprehensive estate plans for a diverse group of Florida clients. My firm offers individualized attention and shows how wills and other instruments, such as trusts, advance directives and guardianship instructions, can accomplish your objectives and avert problems for your loved ones.
Throughout Lake County and the surrounding region, I handle a full range of tasks pertaining to the creation, review and executions of wills, such as:
Don’t hesitate to obtain the assistance you need from a qualified estate planning attorney. Whatever your objectives are, you’ll emerge with a will that reflects your values and enforces your intentions.
Losing a loved one is difficult enough, but if you’ve been named as personal representative of the estate, you face a new set of challenges. My firm can explain which of the various probate options that exist under Florida law is best given the value of the estate and other factors. Whether formal administration or summary administration works best, I will handle each crucial task with skill and efficiency, including filing the will, communicating with beneficiaries, gathering and making an inventory of assets, paying other expenses and ultimately executing the directions set forth in the will.
Addressing how your property should be distributed is very important, but even more important is ensuring the well-being of your children if they become orphaned. I take great care to explain how legal guardianship is established in Florida and to make sure that parents have the information they need when designating someone to care for their sons and daughters. Nothing is ever certain, but I’ll help you gain the peace of mind that comes with knowing that plans are in place to protect your children in the event of an untimely tragedy.
