Is a handwritten Will valid in Florida? Sure is! As long as it is signed by the testator (that’s the person making the Will) at the end of the document, in front of two witnesses who also sign (all 3 must be in each other’s presence at the time of signing). I don’t advocate that anyone draft their own Will because self-prepared Wills are always problematic for lots of different reasons. But if you are in a pinch, and perhaps you have some legal guidance, you can handwrite your Will.
