Q. if im married can I change my will so when I die my husband doesn't get our marriage assets in state of Florida
A: If you are married in Florida your spouse is legally entitled to certain assets such as your Homestead and certain exempt property. Additionally, if you leave less than 30% of your estate to your spouse he can make an election against your estate. You should contact an estate planning attorney for additional information.
Q. My mother recently passed away at the age of 95 in the state of Florida. I am having a problem with one of her annuities
A: I would highly suggest that you do not send them the original copy of any documents that you have regarding beneficiary designation. It might be a good idea to hire an attorney to write them and make an official demand for payment according to the beneficiary designation form that you have. All the best.
Q. Do you have to file a will in Fl? Everything is left to the husband/wife. House & car is paid off.
A: My condolences to you and your family. Under Florida law, a Will must be filed 10 days after death. Filing a Will does not mean there has to be a probate administration. I am not sure what you mean when you say "everything is left to the husband/wife." If title to the property is jointly held with the husband/wife or if husband/wife is a beneficiary then probate is no need. Of course, if any property is held in the name of the person who died then probate is likely necessary. Please contact a reputable attorney for further clarification.
