Legal Answers
1 Questions Answered
Q. Do you have to file a will in Fl? Everything is left to the husband/wife. House & car is paid off.
A: It really depends on how assets are titled. As an example, if the husband and wife co-own the house as Tenants-by-the-Entirety OR Joint Tenants with Rights of Survivorship, then when one passes away, title automatically passes to the surviving spouse (i.e. no need to probate the house). If all financial accounts, life insurance policies, are either jointly owned or list the surviving spouse as the "pay on death beneficiary" - then those accounts would also automatically pass to the surviving spouse (i.e. no need to probate those appropriately named financial accounts). But if any asset is only owned by the deceased spouse (without a co-owner or POD beneficiary listed) then a probate WOULD be necessary and the Will would need to be filed with the probate court.
