Legal Question

Asked on: 8/26/13, 9:23 am

My in-laws created a will in Florida, contains estate executor stipulation. They are now residing in Virginia. Does the will have to be redrafted/signed/documented with a lawyer in Virginia to avoid any possible conflicts with state law?. e.g. estate needs to go into probate, because the will was done in Florida?

No, as long as this will was properly executed according to the

laws of Florida governing such matters, it does not need to be

redone merely because the testators have now moved to and reside

in the Commonwealth.

If the executor is not a Virginia resident, it might be a good idea to change that, unless the named executor is a direct relative.
