Managing the final affairs of what may seem to be a straightforward process can become challenging very quickly when disputes arise between heirs, beneficiaries, and creditors. Although most claims settle out of court, sometimes your DeBary, FL, family law attorney may recommend probate litigation to protect the estate's financial interests and ensure the decedent's final wishes are carried out according to the last will and testament.
Regardless of age, now is the best time to hire an estate planning attorney. Estate planning is a legal and financial tool that helps protect your finances as you accumulate more assets and minimize taxes while enjoying life’s best moments. It also gives you and your family members peace of mind knowing that health directives, distribution of assets to heirs and beneficiaries, and other final details have been made, so that family members have to make those decisions upon your incapacitation or death.
A family law attorney specializes in various family-related matters, such as resolving financial or legal disputes and creating or modifying wills, estates, trusts, and probate.
