Sometimes after a person passes if that person doesn’t leave a Final will there are so many unanswered questions that can lead to families being torn apart. If you aren’t clear about how you want your assets distributed your family is left to guess what it is that you wanted which can lead to fighting, bickering and sometimes long drawn out court proceedings. Even worse if you do not leave a Will, it is up to the state of Florida to decide how they think your lifetimes worth of assets should be given out. Don’t leave the decision in the hands of the government, make sure your final wishes are well known and documented.
