Estate planning can be very personal. Details, such as what your assets are, how you plan to distribute them, who you trust as alternate decision-makers and who you trust to handle your final affairs, can be difficult to talk about, especially if you are trying to avoid conflict with family members.
In this day and age, it is nearly impossible for a Myrtle Beach resident to not have an online presence. Digital assets have fast become an important part of an estate plan. When a person passes away, it can be difficult for the family to access these online accounts. The Florida Fiduciary Access to Digital Assets Act is legislation that residents may want to be aware of.
Many Myrtle Beach area residents have had a chance to put together an estate plan. When an estate plan is created, it is expected that it will be followed as written. Usually, this is the case and an estate plan is a welcome document when a person passes away. Occasionally, a will is contested in probate litigation.
