Family Law Directions
Every person, especially those people with children, should have a will, which is a legal instrument directing how your
property should be disposed upon your death.   Basic wills will contain the following provisions:

  • Appointment of a Personal Representative (executor) who is the person that you designate to supervise the
    administration of your estate;
  • Directions regarding payment of final expenses, including burial and payment of debts;
  • Charitable gifts (such as gifts to churches or schools);
  • Specific bequests to individuals (such as jewelry, artwork, etc.);
  • Residuary Clause-  This clause is a “catch all” clause which directs what will happen to the remainder of your estate
    after all debts and gifts have been distributed;
  • Appointment of a Guardian for your minor children;
  • Whether any specific bequest will be held in trust for any party;
  • Powers of the Personal Representative; and
  • Any other miscellaneous provisions concerning your estate and how you would like for it to be distributed.

In order for a will to be valid and enforceable in the state of Florida, the document needs to be signed, under oath, and
witnessed by two individuals.
