Including Fido and Fluffy when estate planning

Most people who have pets consider them members of the family. So, where does Fluffy or Fido stand when it comes to Florida residents who are in the midst of estate planning and thinking about their furry family members? Can people set up a trust for their pets to ensure they'll be looked after once they've died? The short answer is, yes, and every state but one has provisions for doing so.

Shying away from estate planning creates loved ones more grief

Americans shy away from talking about one of life's inevitable events. Death is a surety in life, but no one likes to discuss it and so many Florida residents put off estate planning for as long as possible, while some never take the time to plan at all. That is a mistake since  family members are then left to sort through what might be a messy estate situation.
