Is a last will and testament made while living in Florida be viable now that I live full time in Ohio
1 Answer from Attorneys
Your last will and testament from Florida would be valid and would be admitted for probate in an Ohio Probate Court, so long as the document satisfies the requirements of being a valid will in the state of Florida as of the time it was created.
Of course, moving to a new state is a significant life event and it might be a good time to have your estate plan reviewed in general to make sure it reflects your current wishes. You might also wish to put in place other supporting legal documents, such as Assignment of Disposition Rights, which is specific to Ohio law and would designate a person of you choice to be legally in charge of your final funeral, burial, or similar arrangements upon your death.
