Question

Asked 1144 days ago by a user from Hollywood, FL

Will a Codicil to a Will leaving a Life Estate to my Caregiver suffice if my Will leaves the property to my son and daughter jointly.

I prepared a will leaving my Estate to my son and. daughter jointly, I also left them with a power of attorney to handle all affairs jointly. I wish to leave a life estate to my caregiver who has been taking care of me through my illnesses but did not include it in the will. Does this create a problem for her. This is in Florida and will she receive a Homestead Exemption.
