If you've not completed a will during your lifetime, then the Florida statutes will substitute a will for you. They're called the Florida intestate statutes. Within those statutes, they will decide who will receive your assets, who will represent your interest before the court, and who will protect any minor children that you may have. While there is a fallback within the Florida statutes, it is critically important that you create a will to make sure that your wishes are carried out.
