Just Moved to Florida?
Estate Planning for New Florida Residents
There are general rules and guidelines pertaining to the terms and conditions stipulated in estate planning and
probate laws from state to state. However, there are also state-specific laws that govern each of these processes. If you are a new resident to Florida, an important step to take as you settle into your new home will be that of ensuring that your
trust, or any other kind of estate planning documents meet the standards specified in Florida's Probate Code, as defined in Chapters 731 through 735 in the Florida statues. The rules governing probate in Florida and the proceedings that go along with it can be found in the Florida Probate Rules, Part I and Part II. You are not expected to understand the legalities and terminology utilized in these codes and statues. What is expected is that you obtain the appropriate legal professional to help you understand these laws and exactly how they pertain to your case.
At The Law Office of Gary G. Carpenter, you will find a legal professional who is ready to help you take on the unique circumstances of your case. As a new resident to the state, the terms and conditions specified in your will, healthcare advance directive, etc. may not be in alignment with current Florida state laws pertaining to such matters. Therefore, you will need to have them amended to fit the expectations of the new state in which you have taken up residence. The best way to ensure that this is done properly is with the help of a professional on your side who will provide you with the personalized service you deserve as you make the transition from one state to another.
