Florida Estate Plan Attorney
A Will is a legal document setting out who will be beneficiaries of your estate and how and when they receive their inheritance. Any person who is 18 years of age or older and who is of sound mind may make a Will in Florida. If you do not have a Florida Will, the state determines who, if anyone, is entitled to receive your estate after your death.
When preparing a Will in Florida, you should consult with a licensed Florida attorney who has experience in preparing Wills. There are formalities by which a Will must be executed and witnessed in order for it to be valid in Florida and to avoid a will contest after you pass away. A Florida Will must be signed in the presence of two witnesses and must be notarized. Additionally, the will appoints a Personal Representative who is granted the responsibility of paying the last expenses of the decedent, identifying the decedent’s beneficiaries and distributing the assets of the decedent to the beneficiaries. A Florida Will may also contain trust provisions as well as provisions that allow for specific gifts of property.
