Common Questions about Wills
Can I make a will that disinherits my daughter?
With the exception of your spouse and children under the age of 18, there is no forced heirship for children in Florida. You may omit anyone from your will other than minor children and spouses.
Does an attorney have to be present at the signing of a will?
While there is no requirement of having an attorney prepare or be present at the execution of a will, most will contests that I have dealt with involve a family member preparing and/or assisting in the execution. Using an experienced estate attorney is the best way to prevent issues which are not otherwise evident until after the testator has died and cannot change the will.
