No, a will does not need to be notarized in Florida to be valid. However, notarizing the will can make it easier to probate the estate after the person's death.
In Florida, a will can be self-proved, which means it is signed in front of two witnesses who also sign the document, and a notary public acknowledges the signatures. This makes it easier for the will to be admitted to probate later.
