provided to The Santiva Chronicle

The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company is offering a seminar with financial and law experts on the many tips for becoming a Florida resident, establishing domicile in the state as well as other estate planning tips to protect your assets and homestead. The event will be at 10 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 16 at the community room of Green Schoenfeld & Kyle, 1380 Royal Palm Square Blvd., Fort Myers.

The session will include topics about domicile versus residency, how domicile protects personal assets, community property trusts, how trusts play a role in your planning, how and where trusts and investments are managed for tax purposes, and how to keep your domicile if you have been displaced by the hurricane.

Speakers include:

Lowell Schoenfeld, board-certified wills, trusts and estates attorney at Green Schoenfeld & Kyle

Jennifer Hammond and Joe Cuffel, trusts and estates attorneys at Green Schoenfeld & Kyle

Megan Marquardt, senior vice president of Wealth Services at The Sanibel Captiva Trust Company

“Many new Florida homeowners don’t realize that Florida residency is not Florida domicile, which is critically important when it comes to your estate plan and the laws that govern it,” said Megan Marquardt, SVP, Sanibel Captiva Trust Company. “So we highly encourage anyone new to the state or planning to move here to attend a domicile session to learn more.”

Seating is limited, and reservations are required. $2 million in investible assets and higher. Contact Frances Steger at or call 239-472-8300.
