Florida Estate, Trust, and Real Estate Attorney
Spousal Rights | Surviving Spouse
Cost Effective Service
Upon the death of a spouse, Florida law provides a surviving spouse with an entitlement to a share of the deceased’s spouse’s estate, regardless of the terms of any will. In Florida, a spouse cannot be disinherited by a will, and if a there is no will, a spouse is entitled to a substantial portion of the estate. The only exception to above would be if a surviving spouse waived their rights through a marital agreement.
Some of the spousal rights provided in Florida’s probate code are: elective share, intestate share, family allowance, exempt property, and homestead property. Click on the links below for further information:
