What is required to make a will?

A will is valid in Florida if:

  • The person who wrote the will signs it at the end of the document
  • Two witnesses sign the will
  • Each person who signs attests:
    • That they knew they were signing a will
    • That they all signed the will in front of each other
  • All signatures are notarized
