Make Certain Legal Documents Prepared Out of State Still Apply

Judie Rappaport
January 13, 2015

Dear Judie,

When I resided in California, a California attorney prepared my will.  Is it still valid now that I’m retiring in Florida? It’s just a simple will and I’m trying to avoid contacting an attorney.
- Frank, Martin County


Dear Frank,

Your question impacts many Florida retirees. To be certain the State of Florida will honor a will prepared in another state, contact a Florida attorney. If finances make this difficult, try calling the Florida Senior Legal Helpline, a free service for Floridians aged 60+.   Call 1-888-895-7873 (toll free) to schedule an appointment. An attorney or paralegal will call you back and answer your questions.
