regarding the distribution of your assets and the handling of your affairs after your passing. At Knudsen Law, our Tampa will attorneys understand the importance of creating a valid
and well-drafted will that reflects your unique circumstances and ensures your wishes are respected.

Tampa Last Will & Testament Attorney

Your Last Will and Testament serves as a guide for how your assets should be distributed among your designated beneficiaries or heirs upon your death. From real estate and bank accounts to investments and personal belongings, a Last Will and Testament lets you specify who should receive what portion of your estate. With guidance from an experienced Tampa will attorney, you can ensure that your loved ones’ financial future is safeguarded and that your hard-earned assets are distributed according to your intentions.

Personal Representative / Executor: Entrust Your Estate to a Reliable Advocate

In your Last Will and Testament, you have the opportunity to appoint a personal representative or executor (as its known in other states) who will be responsible for carrying out your instructions and administering your estate. The personal representative’s role includes:

  • Gathering your assets.
  • Settling debts and taxes.
  • Ultimately distributing the remaining assets to the beneficiaries as specified in your Last Will and Testament.

Our experienced team will help you select a trustworthy representative who will faithfully fulfill your wishes.

Guardianship: Protect Your Children’s Well-Being

For individuals with minor children, a Last Will and Testament allows you to designate a guardian responsible for the care and upbringing of your children in the unfortunate event of your passing. This provision ensures that your wishes regarding your children’s well-being are known and usually followed by the Court. Our compassionate attorneys will guide you through choosing a guardian, providing peace of mind knowing that your children will be cared for by someone you trust.

Probate Process: Streamline Estate Administration

After your passing, your Last Will and Testament typically goes through a legal process called probate. Probate involves:

  • Validating the will.
  • Settling debts and taxes.
  • Ensuring the proper distribution of assets according to your instructions.

A valid and well-drafted Last Will and Testament can help streamline and guide the probate process, reducing complexities and potential disputes. Our meticulous attention to detail ensures that your Last Will and Testament is prepared to easily withstand the probate process.

Ultimately, most Estate Planning is done in hopes of passing assets outside of Probate. With that in mind, our attorneys also work with Clients to plan on ways to escape the probate process.

Modification and Revocation: Flexibility for Your Changing Needs

A Last Will and Testament is a flexible document that can be modified or revoked during your lifetime, provided you are mentally competent. Changes can be made through legal processes, such as codicils (amendments to the Last Will and Testament), or by creating a new Last Will and Testament that explicitly revokes the previous one. We will assist you in understanding the options available for modifying or revoking your Last Will and Testament, ensuring that it accurately reflects your evolving circumstances and desires.

Asset Distribution: Protect Your Loved Ones’ Future

Creating a valid and well-drafted Last Will and Testament is crucial for ensuring that your final wishes are respected, your assets are distributed according to your intentions, and potential conflicts among family members or beneficiaries are minimized. We strongly recommend consulting with a Tampa estate planning attorney who specializes in Estate Planning to ensure that your will is legally sound and tailored to your specific needs.
