Are out of State Wills valid in Florida? Florida Statute Section 732.502(2) states that any will, other than a holographic or nuncupative will, executed by a nonresident of Florida is valid as a will in Florida under the laws of the state or country where the will was executed.

For example, a Will executed pursuant to the laws of the State of New York will be valid in Florida.  This is extremely important for snowbirds who travel to the State of Florida for six (6) months every winter.

As a background, a holographic will is a will that is handwritten by the testator without any witnesses.  In addition, a nuncupative will is a will that is made verbally in the presence of witnesses.  No matter where a holographic or nuncupative will is executed, they are not valid in Florida.

We recommend that all residents of Florida have an experienced attorney review their Will to ensure that it complies with the laws of the State of Florida.  We always recommend hiring a Boynton Beach Estate Planning Attorney.  The experienced and knowledgeable Boynton Beach Estate Planning Attorneys at the Law Office of Ryan S.
