Video Blog: In Florida, What Is An Elective Share For A Widow Or Widower?
Attorney Jeffrey P. Coleman explains the meaning of elective share.
The elective share is that portion of the estate that a widow or widower may have (in the way of a claim) against the deceased assets. It is an election that may prevent them from taking assets under the will or may act as a supplement to those. These matters are very technical and you will need assistance from a Florida lawyer in order to address your interests.
