WHAT IS A WILL?
A will is a writing, signed by the decedent and witnesses, that meets the requirements of Florida law. In a will, the decedent can name the beneficiaries whom the decedent wants to receive the decedent’s probate assets. The decedent also can designate a personal representative (Florida’s term for an executor) to administer the probate estate.
If the decedent’s will disposes of all of the decedent’s probate assets and designates a personal representative, the will controls over the default provisions of Florida law. If the decedent did not have a valid will, or if the will fails in some respect, the identities of those who will receive the decedent’s probate assets, as well as who will be selected as the personal representative of the decedent’s probate estate, will be as provided by Florida law.
In the event that the decedent did not have a Will or an invalid Will, then Florida law will dictate how to distribute the decedent’s probate estate. The court will administer the estate as it is required to do so under the Florida law regarding Intestacy (without a Will).
