Florida Probate on your mind?

Welcome!

Hopefully this is your last destination for information about the Florida Probate process.

Florida Probate Law can be very different than probate in other states.

There are pitfalls everywhere and even the “simplest” of probates can become complicated if executed poorly.

There is an overwhelming amount of information on the internet but none of it can substitute a chat with a Florida Probate attorney. So please feel free to read the blog and soak up the information but when you’re done, we should talk.

Florida Probate in a nutshell:

  • Florida probate administration is a court process.
  • Assets are collected, creditors are paid and beneficiaries receive whatever remains.
  • Assets = Real Estate or Personal Property
  • Two kinds of “Florida Probate”: Summary & Formal
  • The existence of a Will does not eliminate the need for probate
  • In Florida, “Personal Representatives” are in charge of “probating” the estate
  • Personal Representatives must have attorney representation (attorneys do most of the work)
  • Most probate cases are filed by mail with telephone hearings (so your attorney does not have to be in the county where probate is required)

Is Probate Necessary?

The key question on every person’s mind when faced with probate is:

The answer is always a big fat “maybe”.
