What are the different types of heirs?

You have likely been told more than once that the time to start your estate planning is now. One of the main reasons behind this advice is to the ensure that you retain control over who in Hernando County benefits from your estate. Typically, your beneficiaries will come directly from your pool of heirs. This might seem confusing given that like many, you may think the words "heir" and "beneficiary" are synonymous. Not only are they not, but there actually different types of heirs. 

What about my pets after I die?

Like other responsible Floridians, you have a solid will or trust in place to protect your assets in case you become incapacitated, and to give your loved ones a respectable inheritance. However, you didn’t think to include Spot in your will. Your daughter and beloved pup love each other, so you assume that if you outlive your pet, your daughter will take over his care.

Understanding the automatic stay

A common misconception that many in Hernando Count have regarding bankruptcy is that it is just an easy way for you to not have to pay your bills. We here at The Day Law Office have even spoken with potential clients who have been told that through a bankruptcy's automatic stay, any collection efforts that have been initiated against them must cease. Yet while the automatic stay does indeed keep certain creditors from coming after you, it may not signal the end of having to deal with others. 

Outlining a parenting coordinator's qualifications

The hope is that as divorcing parents work through child custody proceedings in Hernando County, they may put aside the personal differences and disagreements that might have contributed to their separation in order to come up with a parenting plan that is in their kids' best interests. Often, however, that is not possible, and in such cases, the court may be required to appoint a parenting coordinator. According to the Florida Bar Association, a parenting coordinator is an impartial third party tasked with helping separated parents work towards improving in the areas of communication, negotiation and problem-solving in order to best meet their children's needs. 

Knowing when your child support obligation ends

Like most parents in Hernando County, you are likely willing to do anything to support your children. Thus, meeting your child support obligation may never even be an issue for you. At the same time, you probably hope to reach a point where you no longer have to pay it. Many come to us here at The Day Law Office wondering when the requirement to pay child support ends. As it is in your case, this question does not come from an unwillingness to pay, but rather the expectation that at some point, their children will be able to support themselves. 

What about your kids?

It is easy to fall into the trap of thinking that estate planning on applies to how your assets and property will be dispersed amongst your beneficiaries in Hernando County once you are gone. In reality, there are many more facets to it that you need to consider (especially if you have young children). Perhaps even more important than specifying how your assets will benefit your children is designated who should be responsible for them should both you and your spouse die.
