Do I need a Florida Will?

Many of our clients always seem to always ask us Do I need a Florida Will? Our answer is – we recommend that ALL adults have some type of Florida estate planning in place. A Florida Will is a legal document that sets forth your wishes and/or desires regarding the distribution of your property. Simply put, a Florida Will distributes assets including individual gifts to family and friends and sets the parameters for the care of any minor children. Florida Wills can come in several varieties, from the very simple to the more complex, which can include trusts. It is important to have a Florida Will because it gives the individual full discretion over the distribution of your assets. A Florida Will helps give you peace of mind as it dictates the assets that specific family members receive and will reduce any tensions between survivors/descendants.

What Passes Outside a Florida Will?

Many documents pass outside a Florida Will. For example, a life insurance policy, 401(k), IRA and pension all name beneficiaries in their individual policies. As such, those specific documents are not required to be listed in the Florida Will. To learn more about Florida Wills or the requirements of a Florida Will, please visit Florida Statutes, Chapter 732.
