Every individual who dies in the state of Florida is deemed to have an estate plan. If you do not have an estate plan prepared at the time of your death, your estate plan will be chosen by the State of Florida. For those who die without a will, the Florida Intestacy Statute will apply, which will provide the manner in which your property passes as well as determine heirs and their share.

A well-prepared estate plan will give you control over your property both before and after your death, and will allow you to take care of yourself and your loved ones if you become disabled.
