Living wills are a good idea at any age

Health care directives, also known as living wills, are a good idea for anyone who wants to have a say if they are ever incapacitated by injury or illness, and unable to speak up for themselves.

It is not necessary for people in Florida to name a family member to be the personal representative of their estate. Also known as an executor, the personal representative is the person or entity charged with administering the testator’s estate after he or she passes away. Under Florida law, a personal representative must either be a state resident, or a parent, child or close relative of the decedent.
