Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
My name is***** have over 16 years experience in the law. Should you like to chat on the phone I am happy to for a nominal cost. Let me know at any time during our question and answer session if you are interested I am happy to give you more details.What you are describing is not fraud. There is no FL law requiring a spouse to provide for their spouse. A person could, if they were so inclined, give their estate to charity, or their neighbor, or whomever they like, regardless of if they are married or notNow....FL law provides for an "elective share" to a spouse of a person who dies. The elective share is an amount equal to 30% of the elective estate. Fla.Stat. §732.2065But to answer your question...this is not fraud. It is entirely legal.
