What Is A Will?
A will is a legal document that sets forth your wishes of how the distribution of your property and the care of any minor children will take place after your death. A will appoints a “Personal Representative” who is responsible for the distribution and handling of the assets during the estate settlement process.
In order for a will to be valid in Florida, it must comply with “The Statute of Wills” which among other things requires the document be signed in the presence of at least two witnesses.
A will can be amended (By a document called a “codicil”) or revoked at anytime while you are alive.
In Florida, a “Holographic Will” one that is handwritten by the testator, and does not comply with the statute of wills is considered invalid.
