& Estate Planning

Estate Planning

Estate planning often covers a lot of ground. From simple to complex problems, The Law Firm of Sebastian Nye-Schmitz is dedicated to assisting clients in planning and managing their estates. We strive to help clients work through the tax and non-tax issues associated with transferring wealth. We work as counselors to assist clients when making decisions about how the next generation will handle wealth inheritance. Together with our client’s financial and tax advisors, we work to craft a plan that meets each client’s individual needs.

Some of the tools we use in this process include:

  • Wills
  • Revocable Trusts
  • Irrevocable Trusts
  • Health Care Surrogates
  • Powers of Attorney
  • Florida Domicile Planning

Probate

As part of our estate planning practice, we often provide advice on how to avoid probate. However, if probate of an estate is necessary, we assist clients in finding an efficient, cost-effective method to transfer wealth. We are experienced in probating wills, administering trusts, transferring assets, accounting to beneficiaries, and advising fiduciaries.

Some of our experience includes:

  • Formal probate
  • Ancillary probate
  • Summary administration
  • Determination of Homestead
  • Administering Trusts
  • Distributing Assets to Beneficiaries
  • Accounting to Beneficiaries
