If you have relocated to Florida or changed your state of residence to Florida, it’s important to determine whether your current will is still valid and legally binding.

Like other contracts, wills are governed by state law. If you have an existing will that was drafted while you were residing in another state, you should have your out-of-state will reviewed by a Florida estate planning attorney to be sure it will operate effectively in Florida. 

In most instances, it’s best to have your attorney update your estate planning documents to reflect your new state of residence and to keep all of the documents functioning as a cohesive estate plan.
