You may make a handwritten will in the state of Florida. For it to be effective, it must be executed with the formalities of will execution required in the state of Florida. That means it must have at least two witnesses, who are unrelated to you preferably. In addition you should have a self proving affidavit on the will so that the will can be admitted to probate after your death without having to locate the witnesses, and ask them to go to the court. It is always a better idea to see an attorney so that you can avoid the many pitfalls of self preparation of a will.
