Florida Breach of Contract

Palm Beach Breach of Contract Attorneys

Breach of contract is a legal cause of action in Florida in which a contract, or binding agreement, is not adhered to by one or more parties to that contract. The non-adherence can be non-performance, failure to act or the inaction. If one party does not fulfill his contractual obligations, he has then breached the contract.

Breaches are said to be either material or non-material. A material breach is one that significantly alters the original intention of the contract. A non-material breach is one that is not considered material and does not significantly alter the original intention of the contract.

If a breach of contract occurs, then the injured party is entitled to certain legal or equitable remedies and money damages in Florida.

What happens if I die without a Will in Florida

Florida Will Attorneys

Die without a Will in Florida? All adults should have a Will. The truth is that a majority of adults in the United States do not have a Will. Many people think that since they do not have a lot of assets or a lot of money, they do not have to be bothered with the drafting of a Will. It is important to understand that it does not matter how small of an estate you have, all adults should have a Will to make your life easier and the lives of your family easier. We understand that it is never “fun” to talk about what happens when you are no longer with loved ones, but the more planning you do, the easier the transition will be. In Florida, if an individual dies without a Will, or intestate, the Florida Statutes dictate how your assets will be distributed. Per the Florida Statutes, Chapter 732 states that a surviving spouse will receive the entire intestate estate if there is no surviving descendant. If an individual is survived by one or more descendants, all of whom are also descendants of the surviving spouse, the surviving spouse receives the entire intestate estate. If there are one or more surviving descendants of the individual who dies who are not lineal descendants of the surviving spouse, the surviving spouse receives one-half of the intestate estate and the other descendants receive the other one-half. If there is no surviving spouse, the descendants of the individual who dies receives the intestate estate. If there are no descendants, the descendant’s father and mother equally receive the intestate estate. As you can see, the Florida Statutes detail in depth who gets what in the case that an individual dies without a Will. Although the Florida Statutes state who receives what in the case of intestacy, it is always better to name your heirs instead of having the State of Florida determine who gets what.

What is a Will and why do I need one (Florida)

Florida Will

A will is a legal document that sets forth your wishes and/or desires regarding the distribution of your property. Usually, a will distributes assets including individual gifts to family and friends and sets the parameters for the care of any minor children. Wills can come in several varieties, from the very simple to the more complex, which can include trusts. It is important to have a will because it gives the individual full discretion over the distribution of your assets. A will gives you peace of mind as it dictates the assets that specific family members receive and will reduce any tensions between survivors/descendants.  Many documents pass outside a will. For example, a life insurance policy, 401(k), IRA and pension all name beneficiaries in their individual policies. As such, those specific documents are not required to be listed in the Will.  The Law Office of Ryan S. Shipp, PLLC is here to assist with drafting your Florida Will.  Our office is located in Lantana, Florida, we serve all of South Florida.  Call us today for a free consultation or come by and visit us at 814 W.
