Need to Make a Will?

Seasoned Tallahassee Estate Planning Lawyers

In the state of Florida, should you die without having a will in place, your property could be apportioned according to intestate property laws which will give it to your close relatives. If no living relatives can be found, the state will inherit your property.

What can a will do?

While you are not legally obligated to use a lawyer to create a will, it is highly advisable that you do so given the sensitive nature of estate planning in general, especially if, for example, you believe your will may be contested or if you wish to disinherit a spouse. An attorney can help you navigate difficult issues such as these.

A will can be used for the following:

  • Name a guardian to look after your minor children
  • Name a personal representative to ensure the terms of your will are executed properly
  • Leave your property to a certain person or organization
  • Name a trusted individual to handle the property you leave to minor children

To finalize a will, you will need to sign your will in front of two witnesses who must also sign your will. It need not be notarized, but having it notarized can help with the probate process by allowing the court to not need to contact the signing witnesses.
