What is Florida Probate?
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 Administration
- 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)
