Is That Even a Thing?!
If you live in the Sarasota area, you may be familiar with the local legend of Leona Helmsley, an American Businesswoman who famously willed her dog, Trouble, a $12 million trust fund.

But it is NOT extreme to make a plan for your pets in the event of your incapacity or death. Florida shelters are notoriously over-run with pets who have been abandoned when their owner has become incapacitated or passed away.

An important part of relocating to another state, that most people forget, is making sure your Estate Plan is updated. State-by-state differences in matters around tax, inheritance, marital property and more make a thorough review imperative. Florida Homestead Laws, for example, often mean out-of-state wills are no longer the most efficient or effective.
