If you die in Florida without a will (the terminology is “dying intestate”), all your assets will be divided among your immediate family (spouse and children).

If you are married without any children, your entire estate will go to your spouse.

If you are married with at least one child, the first $60,000 of your estate (above and beyond any homestead entitlements) plus 50 percent of the remainder of your estate will go to your spouse.   The rest will be divided among your children.
