To be valid under Florida law, a Last Will and Testament, or “will” must include testamentary formalities. More specifically, the will must be in writing and signed in front of two witnesses. The attesting witnesses must sign the will in the presence of the testator and in the presence of each other. Florida law does not permit oral wills, or wills signed without witnesses. Contact your attorney to ensure you have a properly executed will.
