Fort Lauderdale Last Will & Testament Attorney

Draft an Effective Will

While Florida law does provide for your family to inherit your property after you die, a will ensures that your property is divided as you wish. A proper will also means that your property won’t have to be divided in probate court, which comes with hefty costs and a lot of stress. Having a will in place ensures that you are able to pass on as much of your assets to your loved ones as possible.

It is in your best interest to consult with a skilled Fort Lauderdale attorney when it comes time to draft or update your will. Rivera Aguilar Law Firm, P.A. can ensure that your last will and testament is as strong and effective as it can be.

Reach out to Attorney Rivera at (954) 909-0117 today regarding your estate plan to set up your consultation. She offers services in both English and Spanish.

Florida Last Will and Testament Requirements

The laws of the State set the formal requirements for a legal will.

For a last will and testament to be legally binding, Florida Law requires the following:

  • The testator is at least 18 years old
  • The testator is legally competent
  • The documents are signed properly, and
  • Two witnesses viewed and signed the documents

What to Include in a Will

Your will should specify who will inherit your property after your death. It controls the disposition of property at death. It is worth noting that the last will and testament is one of the most important legal documents a person can create during their lifetime.

Your will should include details about:

  • Who will inherit your property
  • Your personal representative or executor
  • Alternate beneficiaries
  • How to allocate your business assets
  • How debts and taxes will be paid
  • Real estate maintenance

When to Update Your Will

It is important to update your will in response to life changes. If you marry or divorce, have children, or gain an additional source of income, you should consider amending your will and allowing an attorney to review and revise it.

If you move to Florida and have a will that was drafted in a different state, it is also wise to have the will reviewed by a lawyer familiar with Florida laws.
