As long as the will satisfied the requirements in Maine, then Florida will accept it. However, I strongly recommend having the will reviewed by a Florida attorney if the person has now moved to Florida. It may be recommended to update the will.

It may be valid but needs to be reviewed to determine if it "self-proving".

You should also discuss some options to avoid probate.
