Experienced Estate Planning Attorney in Orlando: Survivor's Rights

Many clients wonder what to do if a spouse dies without a will. When there was no will in place prior to death , this is called passing away "intestate" . If someone passes away without a will, his or her spouse will receive what is known as an "intestate share." This applies even if the married couple were separated at the time of death.

If the surviving spouse not provided for in the deceased spouse's will, the surviving spouse is known as a "pretermitted spouse." Florida law prescribes that pretermitted spouses are entitled to receive a share of the estate unless the will specifically states anything to the contrary. No matter your current situation, your best course of action will be to discuss your circumstances with a qualified attorney at Jackson Law. We can help you to better understand your current situation and how to move forward.
