A Florida Will is a legal document that sets forth your wishes and/or desires regarding the distribution of your property. Usually, a will distributes assets including individual gifts to family and friends and sets the parameters for the care of any minor children. Wills can come in several varieties, from the very simple to the more complex, which can include trusts. It is important to have a will because it gives the individual full discretion over the distribution of your assets. A will gives you peace of mind as it dictates the assets that specific family members receive and will reduce any tensions between survivors/descendants. Many documents pass outside a will. For example, a life insurance policy, 401(k), IRA and pension all name beneficiaries in their individual policies. As such, those specific documents are not required to be listed in the will.

Pursuant to Chapter 732 of the Florida Probate Code, any person eighteen (18) or more years of age, or an emancipated minor, who is of sound mind may make a Florida Will. For all intended purposes, "sound mind" means someone who has not been deemed incompetent in a prior legal proceeding.
