My Mother lived in Florida where she wrote her will. She now lives in California.

She was told the will was NOT valid in California. Question: Is a will written in Florida valid in California.

Probably, but it is hard to say without reviewing the will first.

If your mother has the capacity to draft a new will, she may want to revise it just to be safe.
