Probate is the process by which assets and property are distributed after a person’s death. The probate process is overseen by a court, which ensures that all assets are distributed to the beneficiaries named in the will. If the person died without creating a will, the court oversees the distribution of the estate to the decedent’s heirs according to an established formula.
Either way, probate requires the court appointment of a Personal Representative (also known as an Executor) to handle the process, ensuring that executors have good legal representation and the support they need to fulfill their legal and fiduciary obligations. Dennis D. Camp, PA represents not only executors named in the will but also executors named by the court in cases where no will was ever established. Of course, it’s always better to avoid putting your loved ones in this situation by making a will ahead of time, and our office can also help you draw up a will to guarantee that your estate is distributed the way you would prefer.
In the interest of streamlining the legal process after their passing, people will sometimes create a living trust. Many people create a living trust to make sure their estate won’t have to go through probate. In this situation, the distribution of the estate is handled by the successor trustee or trustees named by the decedent. Dennis D. Camp, PA can also provide legal counsel for the successor trustees, so they can administer the trust with full confidence until their responsibilities are concluded. Our office can also help you determine if the estate may qualify for summary administration, a shorter form of the probate process.
Estate planning is the process of making sure that your assets and property are distributed to the people you want them distributed to after your death. If you haven’t done proper estate planning, your estate will be administrated according to a statutory process, that may result in your assets being distributed in a way different from what you would have preferred.
Estate planning includes several aspects. The first is creation of a last will and testament. A properly drawn-up will specifies exactly who should receive every item or piece of property in your estate, and can help prevent conflict and hard feelings between your loved ones after you die.
Another aspect of estate planning is the option of creating and funding a living trust. A living trust is a legal entity that owns your property, allowing you to continue to use it as if you still owned it yourself and to specify who should receive it after your death. It functions much like a will, but unlike a will, one of its purposes is to make probate unnecessary.
An estate plan can also appoint someone to be your health care surrogate or exercise power of attorney in the event that you are no longer able to make your own decisions about important medical or legal matters.
There are many different factors involved in drafting an estate plan that’s right for you. An estate planning attorney can help guide you through the process, making sure not only that your wishes are respected but that you achieve the goals that are most important to you. Ocala, Florida estate planning attorney Dennis D. Camp, PA can help you with every aspect of creating an estate plan that does exactly what you want and need it to do.
