WHY CHOOSE SHERRI M. STINSON, P.A.?
CAN YOU MAKE CHANGES TO A WILL OR TRUST?
A will does not go into effect until you pass away. Thus, you can change or revoke it at any time. You can also modify and cancel a revocable trust. However, if you create an irrevocable trust, it cannot be changed. Some people choose irrevocable trusts because they shield assets from creditors. Also, these trusts reduce the tax burden even further. Your estate planning lawyer in Palm Harbor will discuss the benefits and drawbacks to help you determine what type of trust is right for you.
CAN YOU DISINHERIT YOUR SPOUSE?
Florida law protects spouses during the estate planning process. Even if your marriage is breaking down, you cannot disinherit your spouse. Your spouse will be entitled to his or her elective share. The only way to avoid this is with the proper legal documents. However, if you divorce your spouse, you can change your estate plan to avoid leaving any property to him or her. Talk to an estate planning lawyer about your options.
