What is Florida probate?

Probate is the legal process of distributing a deceased individual’s assets to pay probate costs, outstanding debts, and the remainder to the decedent’s heirs.  In Florida, the probate process can prove difficult for anyone not practiced in steering through its murky waters, so we recommend any personal representative in probate matters retain the services of an experienced Florida probate lawyer.  For example, instead of using terms like executor that are common in most other states, Florida calls the executor/administrator of an estate the “personal representative”, in addition to many other subtleties only a practiced Florida probate lawyer would know. There are also many deadlines which need to be complied with.

Why is probate required?


The probate process wraps up a decedent’s financial matters and administrates his or her will properly.  In the instance that there is no will, probate determines the payment of creditors and the passing of ownership of property to any existing legal beneficiaries. 


Types of probate in South Florida

There are generally three different probate processes in Florida.  Formal Administration, for large or complicated estates, Summary Administration, for estates under a certain amount, and Disposition Without Administration, used for estates containing property generally exempt from probate administration.  Whatever type of probate estate you need to open in South Florida, you should have the guidance of experienced Broward probate administration lawyer or Florida probate attorney to aid you through this process.

In some instances where a relative had no will, had a will, or where a will is deemed invalid, someone may suddenly find out that they have been named the personal representative in someone's will or by operation of Florida probate law. They could be  responsible for opening a probate estate in the eyes of the court.  If a loved one died and had any property or assets, you should contact a Florida probate lawyer at the Law Offices of Jason Turchin today for a free consultation at 800-337-7755.
