- Typical assets that go through probate: real estate or titled/documented personal property
- Assets are collected, creditors are paid and beneficiaries receive whatever remains.
- There are 2 types of probate: Summary & Formal Administration

- In Florida, “Personal Representatives” are in charge of probating the estate and are almost always required to have an attorney. These attorneys handle nearly all of the probate court work.
