Your Last Will and Testament
Preparing your Last Will and Testament is a smart way to control the disbursement of your wealth to your family and to selected charities. Without a will, Florida law dictates otherwise and, in some cases, the results will surprise you. In one of our cases, our client died, having a bride from his second marriage. During his 10 year first marriage, he had a son but, upon divorcing and remarrying, our client never took the time to prepare his Last Will and Testament, probably because he thought himself much too young to die. A tragic car accident changed all that and, according to Florida law, his new bride of 5 years did NOT inherit our client’s home. He had not placed her on the deed either. Instead, our client’s son (from the first marriage) became the lawful owner of the marital home. Preparing a will could have avoided this unusual result. We prepare wills.
