Estate planning after a Florida divorce

In the aftermath of a divorce, it can be difficult to remember all the things that need to be changed in your life.

Planning ahead helps you avoid legal, tax problems

Your homestead, your 401(k), the cash in your bank account, your life insurance policy and your closely held business interests. They are all assets you have worked long and hard to acquire, but each should be considered separately when you are sitting down to figure out how to distribute your assets in an estate plan.

Should new Brevard County residents update out-of-state estate plans?

Many Brevard County people are originally from Minnesota, Ohio, New York, Michigan and other snow-covered places. Now that you're in the Sunshine State, do you have to get all of your estate planning documents from those other places converted to Florida documents?
