Do you need a Will Revocation in Florida? Are you curious to know what a Will Revocation in Florida is? Before making a Will Revocation in Florida, The Law Office of Ryan S. Shipp, PLLC always recommends consulting with an Attorney.
Pursuant to Florida Statute 732.505, a Will is revoked by a subsequent inconsistent Will (but the revocation only extends to the inconsistency) or by a subsequent Will or other writing executed with the same formalities required for the execution of Wills declaring revocation. It is common practice when drafted Wills to state that this Will revokes all prior Wills made by the testator. This is to make it clear to the reader that that Will is the most current and up to date.
Florida law makes it easy for Wills to be revoked when the testator has a change of heart or wants to change devisees or beneficiaries. In addition, the revoked Will no longer has force and effect once revoked. If the testator wants to bring it back to life, he or she would have to execute a new Will with the Florida formalities.
The Law Office of Ryan S. Shipp, PLLC recommends 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.
