FLORIDA ESTATE PLANNING

Are you a UK or other foreign national who owns US situated real estate or other US assets, and are interested in planning your estate so that on your death, your Florida situated assets can avoid the costs, delays, and stress of a Florida probate?

There is no one legal system in the USA. Instead, there are 51 separate legal jurisdictions in which a lawyer might practice law, such being the 50 different US state legal systems and the national federal court system. Each state requires a lawyer to be admitted before being able to act in that state.  Most lawyers are qualified in only one state.   

 

Please note we cannot assist or provide legal assistance in the 48 US states other than Florida and Ohio save for work which all US lawyers can perform irregardless of whatever state the work would be performed.   

 

Please note we cannot make referrals to other lawyers.  However, we recommend that in seeking another US lawyer you do a google search for the relevant US state's Bar referral or association or go to www.martindale.com and choose the relevant US state and area of practice.  We suggest that you speak to at least three lawyers before making a decision.

 

Our legal services in 

England & Wales :

Please note that our services provided as an English notary public are very different from the service we provide as a commissioner of oaths in England & Wales.

Generally, the amount of work performed in acting as a commissioner of oaths in England & Wales in taking an oath is far less complex and time-consuming than is the case where a notarisation is required.

Please note that where you need documents to be recognised and effective abroad, then it is a notarisation which is to be performed.  Please note that If you need to send a document to be notarised in Australia or New Zealand or elsewhere in the Commonwealth, please note that the certification of a commissioner for oaths is generally not the equivalent of a notarised document and will likely be rejected in the United Kingdom. 

Our US federal legal services we

can provide nationally​:

Save for the US federal legal services identified above, a US lawyer can only provide legal assistance to others in accordance with the law of the state or states where he or she is licensed. 

 

Kevin Michael Burke is a qualified lawyer in the states of Florida and Ohio.  

If you need legal assistance for matters involving the law of US states other than Florida or Ohio, we cannot assist you and you will need to search online for a lawyer referral service in that US state to find a lawyer.
