Tips for creating a will that won’t spark family arguments

If only all families were perfect: If everyone got along perfectly and agreed on everything, then there would be no need to worry when creating your will. However, no family is perfect. Siblings and other relatives who usually get along just fine may come to loggerheads when it comes to a loved one’s estate.

Can disinheritance be a good thing?

When most people hear the word “disinheritance,” they imagine a family rift that caused a parent to write a child out of the will. In some cases, this is true. A parent may feel the need to disinherit a spendthrift child to prevent them from squandering the family fortune. An argument may prompt someone to disinherit their kin. But in other cases, disinheritance is a useful tool that can actually help protect a beloved child’s inheritance.

Time to share news about how to pass on a timeshare

People from all over the nation have purchased timeshares here in Florida. From Cocoa to Orlando and from Miami to Jacksonville (and all places in between), timeshares are to be had for those wanting to escape the cold for a warm beach. Of course, Brevard County residents also buy timeshares in exotic spots around the U.S., including Hawaii, Colorado and California.

Why a personalized will matters

Part of the human experience is being there for friends and family. They help us when needed and we do the same in return. We look out for one another. This continues after death: sharing assets, wealth or family heirlooms. Many people use a will to share with their children, spouse or close friends. If you have no will, the state of Florida oversees what happens to your possessions.

Burt Reynolds left his son out of will – for good reasons

If you drive south of Cocoa along the coast for about two hours, you will arrive in Jupiter, Florida, a city known for its glamorous mix of residents that includes both sports and entertainment industry celebrities. The most well-known of the stars calling Jupiter home was Burt Reynolds, the popular actor who recently passed away.

Is disinheriting a child the right decision?

People don’t like to talk about wills. For some it’s a fear of mortality, for others it’s a preference to keep finances and family separate. Whatever the reason, the failure to talk about a will makes it harder for those who will (or will not) inherit property to understand and accept it when the time comes.
