    Answered . OK. As difficult as your question is to figure out, the short answer is "No." The attorney's job is merely to draft a will that states the desired distribution of the testator's estate. I don't understand what the rest of your question is about. If you can restate your question in short, well-thought out statements and leaving the cap-lock off, then it will be easier to give you a more succinct answer.

    Answered . Many FL Will provide for a separate written memorandum to be attached to a drafted Will. The memorandum disposes tangible personal property separately from provisions in a Will and can be altered/changed as often as needed. Please see FL Stat. 732.515 for additional information.

    Answered . A seperate memorandum to the Will related to personal property could be included, however any other document or disposition of assets would need to be included in the Will.
