New Florida Law: Estate Planning, Trusts, Estates
Florida Governor Rick Scott signed Senate Bill 492 on June 17, 2013, which makes new law for issues involving estate planning, trusts and estates. Among other things, a gift to a lawyer under a will drafted by that lawyer is void. The new law also provides guidance on personal jurisdiction in trust lawsuits, service of process issues and rules for filing a caveat or estate tax return .
