Understanding The Importance Of State Laws In Estate Planning
State Laws are an important consideration for your Estate Planning, and it is crucial for you to know that laws and guidelines can vary from state to state. It is vital for Florida residents to make sure that your Estate Planning documents are in keeping with Florida Law and Statutes.
For example, there are specific guidelines in Florida regarding who can and cannot serve as your personal representative. Also, there are important requirements for what makes a Will “self proved” — a Will that is not self-proved cannot be entered into probate until a witness is tracked down and goes to the Probate Court to swear an Oath of Witness to Will.
