Does a Wife Automatically Inherit Her Husband’s Assets in Florida?

If a husband dies in Florida, his wife is generally entitled to inherit his estate, assuming that there are no children. There are some exceptions to this rule, such as when the husband had a will that specifically excluded his wife from inheriting his estate. However, in most cases, the wife will be legally entitled to inherit everything her husband owned at the time of death.
