2017.05.17: Florida Electronic Wills Legislation Update 

Chuck Rubin’s blog provides an update on the Florida electronic wills legislation.  His update begins as follows:

A bill has cleared both Houses of the Florida legislature authorizing electronic wills and electronic will execution in Florida. Absent an unexpected veto by Gov. Scott, the last wills of testators may now precede them into the cloud(s).

The new statute has endeavored to reduce avenues for fraud and misdeeds. Only time will tell whether electronic wills will be more or less subject to fraud and improper usage than paper wills. Paper wills are not affected by the new legislation, except as they may be revoked and replaced by electronic wills.
