Florida Slayer Statute Claims

Under the Florida Slayer Statute, a person who is found legally responsible for intentionally causing the death of another cannot benefit from their victim’s estate or insurance policies. This often leads to interpleader lawsuits when the accused is a designated beneficiary. Our legal team can navigate the complexities of such cases, helping to ensure that the estate or insurance proceeds are distributed justly and in accordance with Florida law.

Former Spouse Claims

Disputes often arise when a former spouse is listed as a beneficiary, particularly if the policyholder failed to update their beneficiary designations post-divorce. Florida law has specific provisions regarding the rights of former spouses to insurance proceeds, which often necessitate interpleader actions to resolve conflicting claims.

Last Minute Beneficiary Changes

Contentious issues can also emerge from last-minute beneficiary changes, especially if other potential beneficiaries contest the legitimacy of such changes. Our attorneys are skilled in handling cases where the timing and circumstances of beneficiary changes are under scrutiny.

Beneficiary Changes by Power of Attorney

Changes made to a beneficiary designation by someone holding Power of Attorney can lead to disputes, particularly if there are allegations of undue influence or lack of capacity. We provide legal guidance and representation in interpleader actions arising from such scenarios, fighting to help ensure that the true intentions of the policyholder are honored.

Ambiguous Beneficiary Designations

Ambiguity in beneficiary designations can lead to multiple parties staking a claim to the proceeds. Our legal team’s experience in interpreting and clarifying ambiguous designations can be helpful in resolving these interpleader actions in Florida courts.

Florida vs. Federal Interpleaders

Interpleader actions can be filed in either state or federal court, depending on the case specifics:

  • Florida Interpleaders: Typically involve state law and are handled in the Florida state court system. They are governed by Florida statutes and case law.
  • Federal Interpleaders: Invoked under certain circumstances, such as when the disputed amount exceeds a specific value and the claimants are from different states. Federal interpleaders follow federal rules and procedures.
