WHAT IS THE FLORIDA PROBATE PROCESS?
Probate is the court-supervised transfer of a decedent’s assets to his or her beneficiaries. The process involves various filings and strict adherence to certain deadlines and formalities, as well as identifying and marshaling the decedent’s assets, properly notifying creditors and beneficiaries, paying outstanding debts, and then distributing the decedent’s assets pursuant to his or her last will and testament (in the case where there is no valid will, then according to Florida intestacy provisions).
Except for very small estates, the assistance of a lawyer is required for Probate under Florida law.
Our law firm will guide you confidently through the probate administration process, moving the process along as fast as possible and facilitating a smooth and orderly transfer of assets following a loved one’s death.
