In general estate related documents drawn in another state are ok in Fl. But you can have problems. The executor may not be valid in Fl. The way the documents were signed maybe legal but cause a lot of problems in finding witnesses. POA laws changed in FL and although they say old POA are valid you may have a problem getting a FL institution to accept them.

The trust is probably ok but the real question is do you need one. Also if you home is in the trust you could have problems with the various homestead laws. Property title has to be drafted correctly and the trust may have to be modified to comply with FL homestead laws or you will not get all the benefits.

Also ask the attorney about the title to your home and who has possible rights to it when you die.
