NFL team asked to pay deceased player’s signing bonus

One vital function of those who have been asked to assist in the administration of an estate in Miami is resolving all claims both for and against a decedent. The outcome of such claims could potentially have a significant impact on the overall value of the estate. Thus, beneficiaries, creditors and other interested parties to an estate likely want to see such actions resolved given the impact that it may have on their own personal interests. This may be true despite however seemingly odd (or even distasteful) a claim may be.

Determining your taxable estate

Many people often come to us here at The Law Offices of Frye and Vazquez, P.L. concerned that much of what they have to leave to their spouses, children, and/or grandchildren will be taken through estate taxes. If you share this same concern, you should know one thing: most estates in the U.S. will not be subject to an estate tax. That is because their total values do not exceed the estate tax threshold set by the federal government. Whether or not yours will depends on the value of your taxable estate.

Outlining the process of revoking a will

Whenever you hear news of an estate dispute in Miami, oftentimes the central issue in such cases is the validity of one will over another. We here at The Law Offices of Frye and Vazquez, P.L. can attest to the fact that such disputes can often be avoided by you being as transparent as possible during the estate planning process. Say that you have followed the advice of estate planning experts and created a will early on in your adult life. Changes in your relationship status, career, or even your political and social leanings may prompt you to create a new one later on. How can you ensure that your beneficiaries understand that your subsequent will reflects your true wishes?

How does summary administration work?

You may hear from several people in Miami that one of the main reasons why you should not put off your estate planning is to avoid probate. Probate avoidance strategies have been detailed in previous posts on this blog, yet one question you may want to first ask is whether or not an estate that you are party to even needs to be probated. If you have been named as the executor of an estate, you will especially want to know this before becoming consumed with worry about having to go through probate.
