I KNOW I WANT A REVOCABLE TRUST, WHO SHOULD I NAME AS MY TRUSTEE IN FLORIDA?

PROBATE, REVOCABLE TRUSTS, AND ESTATE PLANNING IN MIAMI BEACH

As a Miami-Dade County Probate, Trust, and Estate Planning Attorney, I wanted to explain how to choose your personal representative, health care surrogate, power of attorney, personal representative/executor and trustee.

I KNOW I WANT A REVOCABLE TRUST, WHO SHOULD I NAME AS MY TRUSTEE IN FLORIDA?

Who would you want to carry out your wishes when you pass away? This person should be trustworthy, sensible, and available for this job. Depending on your assets and the level of complication, this could be a small job or a very large, time-consuming commitment. It is a good idea to ask the person you have selected if they agree to do this job. Once this is accomplished, the trust creation process can begin.

A trust can protect you in Florida from probate and guardianship court involvement.  The first step of creating a trust in Florida is to hire a trust attorney.  Ally Glaser, PA is experienced in Trust creation and can assist you in these matters.

WHO SHOULD I NAME AS MY HEALTH CARE SURROGATE?

Who do you want in charge, of your health care, making decisions for you if you are not able? This person, like the trustee, should be trustworthy, sensible, and available for this responsibility. The person selected will use your Health Care Directive Document to guide them in making heath care decisions on your behalf if you are not able. This person may be the same or different than your choice for trustee. For example, there might be a great candidate for trustee, but that same person might be extremely uncomfortable in medical situations. In this situation, you could choose one person for health care matters and another to handle your financial matters.
