Can I Handwrite My Will?

Can I Handwrite My Will?

Florida law allows you to refer to a list made separately from your Will which states who will receive certain items of personal property. Your Will includes a reference to such a list. The following applies to your list:

-The list can dispose of only personal household goods such as items of furniture, jewelry, sporting goods, tools and so forth. You cannot dispose of cash, bank accounts, stock, insurance policies, real estate, or other non-personal property in your handwritten list.
-The list should be in your own handwriting and should be signed and dated.
-There is no requirement that the list be witnessed.
-The list should be kept with your Will if possible.
