Legal Requirements for a Florida Will, or What is Required for a Valid Florida Will?

What are the legal requirements for a valid Florida will? Well we know that you have to sign the will voluntarily and you need the right mental state to sign the will, but you also have to sign the will with witnesses in a proper order. What probate lawyers call, the execution ceremony. Who signed the will, did they do it in the presence of witnesses? Did the witnesses sign the will in the presence of the person who signed the will? Did they all do that in the same room in front of each other, did everybody see that. If the answer to that question is, “no”, you may be able to set that will aside, you may be able to challenge it and it may have no effect. What is perhaps more important is how do you conduct discovery to learn those facts.
