End of Life and Tangible Assets
If a Florida resident dies without having a valid will, your estate is left up to the mercy of intestate succession laws to decide who has legal right to its contents.
The term “intestate” refers either to an individual who dies without a will or without a valid will. Even for those with a valid will, the intestate process may be required for certain property if the will doesn’t clearly and completely spell out who is meant to receive it.
Let Lacie Bowden help you navigate the process of clearly establishing your wishes to insure your loved ones receive your property without having to go through probate court.
