You should create or update you Will if you own property in your individual name upon your death, just moved to Florida, have minor children, have recently been married or divorced or wish to make a special distribution to a friend or relative.
A Will is simply a set of instructions for your Personal Representative to follow to distribute your property upon your death. If you die without a Will, the State in which you live has basically set up a Will for you by a law that governs intestate succession. However, the distribution pattern the State has set up for you is most likely NOT the way you would normally distribute your property, especially if you have a surviving spouse and children. In other words, it will be governed by the State’s will or dictates, not your own.
