The George Zimmerman Criminal Trial in Florida’s biggest lesson is don’t end up in the Courthouse! Anytime the Court determines the fate of your family or your assets there is a huge loss of control. Whether or not you believe George Zimmerman committed a crime or was simply defending himself, the real lesson is that for a year and a half his fate was in limbo and the outcome of the Court ruling could have gone either way. From following the Trial, some people were sure he would be convicted, while others were confident he would be found not guilty. Regardless of your thoughts about the outcome, the outcome was always in question, because the Judge or Jury decides your fate, not you.
Going through Probate Court will greatly delay administering your Estate Plan, increase your administrative fees dramatically, and make your estate plan open for public inspection.
