Florida Wills

A will is a legal document setting out who will be beneficiaries of your estate, how and when they receive their inheritance. Any person who is 18 years of age or older and who is of sound mind may make a will. If you do not have a will, the state determines who, if anyone, is entitled to receive your estate after your death.
