I have no idea what question you are asking. A child, or anyone for that matter, does not have to live in Florida in order to be a beneficiary under anyone's will. There are limitations for the personal representative but not a beneficiary.

Re: Wills

I'm not sure what you are asking exactly. Any beneficiary of a will, children or not, grown or not, can live anywhere whatsoever. The only location requirement connected to wills is that a will must be probated where the decedent last was domiciled and where real property is located (as ancillary probate). That's it. They can be living anywhere.
