Last Will & Testament
A last will and testament is your written instructions detailing how you want your property to be distributed upon your death. In the will, you designate a “personal representative” to settle your affairs and administer your probate estate. The will may be revoked or amended at any time before your death. In order to execute or amend a will, you must be 18 years old and competent and execute the will with the formalities required by Florida law. Executing or signing the will according to Florida law is highly important. Of most importance, a benefit of preparing a will is that you decide who should get your assets verses Florida’s intestate (dying without a Will) statutes controlling who receives your assets because you had no will.
