A Will is a maker’s written declaration specifying the testator’s intent of how he or she intends to distribute his or her property after death. A Will is revocable and is a legally enforceable instrument that is only operative upon death. In order to prevent fraud and ensure clarity, Wills must be prepared and executed in compliance with Florida statutes.
The following are the commonly minimum requirements in most, if not all, states:
1) Testamentary capacity and intent of testator
2) Will must meet certain formal requirements required by state statute
3) Maker’s signature at the end on a written Will i.e. a Will that is typed
4) Signed before two witnesses; Vermont requires three witnesses
