What is a living will?

If you are a Florida resident who has very strong preferences about what kind of end-of-life medical care you want to receive and/or what types of medical treatments you want and do not want should you become incapacitated by illness or injury, you may wish to consider having a living will. As FindLaw explains, a living will, often called an advance directive, is not really a will as people normally use that word.

What does it mean to die intestate in Florida?

If you are a Florida resident who has not yet gotten around to making a Last Will and Testament, you may wish to reconsider your recalcitrance. While no one likes to think about their own death, having a will is one of the best ways for you to make sure that when you die, your property will go to those and only those to whom you wish to distribute it. If you die before you make a will, you will be considered to have died intestate and the state of Florida will decide who your heirs are and which of them gets which portion of your assets and property.

The importance of a trustworthy guardian for elders

Florida elder law is designed to protect aging individuals, sometimes in cases when they are unable to make healthy and competent decisions on their own. However, these protections come with a cost: One must place one's trust in an appointed guardian. Guardianship should be established carefully, regardless of the fact that it is a relatively straightforward process in the state.
