post about Tennessee Lawyers provide free wills for Emergency First Responders.

The Tennessee Bar Association Young Lawyers Division, in conjunction with dozens of established local attorneys, have begun a program to draft free wills and other basic estate planning documents for localfirefighters, police officers, paramedics/EMT’s, and their spouses. This program is part of a broader initiative to give back to the local heroes and public servants that we so often take for granted.

Any West Palm Beach Probate Litigation attorney will tell you the the importance of wills in Florda and the difference a properly executed will can make when administering your Florida estate.

Why Do I Need a Will in Florida?

  • A will is a Florida estate planning document that lets you tell the world whom you want to get your property.
  • Any Boca Raton Wills and Trusts Lawyer knows, die without one, and the state of Florida will likely decide who gets what for you, without regard to your wishes or your heirs’ needs.
  • If you die, leaving behind a spouse and kids, the Florida Probate Courts will split your property between your them. If you’re single with no children, then the state is likely to decide who among your blood relatives will inherit your estate.
  • Making a will is especially important for people with young children, because creating a will in Florida is the best way to account for guardianship of minors.

Florida law allows you to amend your will at any time. So if you have a change of heart, you can meet with your Fort Lauderdale Probate Attorney that day and change the will instantly. In fact, it’s a good idea to review your Florida estate documents with a Florida probate lawyer periodically.  At the same time, review your beneficiary designations for your 401(k), IRA, pension and life insurance policy since those accounts will be transferred automatically to your named beneficiaries when you die.
