While a will is a legal document for expressing one’s final wishes, it does not bypass probate. Consequently, there remains an inevitable involvement of increased fees and costs. Despite the clarity a will provides in distributing assets, the probate process can lead to additional expenses and delays, underscoring the importance of considering comprehensive estate planning strategies beyond a simple will.
Yes. Pursuant to Florida Statute, Section 732.901(1):
"The custodian of a will must deposit the will with the clerk of the court having venue of the estate of the decedent within 10 days after receiving information that the testator is dead. The custodian must supply the testator’s date of death or the last four digits of the testator’s social security number to the clerk upon deposit. " Therefore, your family would be forced into court and upon filing your Will it would become public knowledge in the event of your death. If you prefer to keep your family out of court, out of conflict and to keep things private, we can help.
