Are Out Of State Wills Valid In Florida?

Out of state Wills (Wills executed by out of state residents in their homestate) are deemed valid in Florida if they were valid in the state they were executed (exception:  holographic Wills, handwritten Wills not witnessed).  However, it's always a good idea to have a Florida attorney review your non-Florida Will because there will likely be some provisions in your Will that will not be honored in Florida.  For example, non-Florida residents may not serve as personal representative or executor of a Florida estate unless they are a family member of the decedent (non-resident friends do not qualify).
