Florida's Electronic Wills Act Reported Favorably by the Judiciary Committee

Electronic willsThe potential Florida Electronic Wills Act specifies requirements that must be satisfied in the execution of electronic wills. Additionally, it allows a will that is properly executed in any state to be admitted to probate in Florida. The Florida Judiciary Committee recently reported favorably on the Act and passed the review on to the Banking and Insurance Committee. 

See CS/SB 206: Electronic Wills, Florida Senate, January 31, 2017.
