Probate In Florida: What To Know
Although there are ways to avoid probate through estate planning, many estates must still go through it. The term probate refers to the process of validating a deceased person’s will and distributing their assets. In Florida, there are two categories for probate:
- Formal administration: A court-supervised process in which a personal representative oversees the notification of beneficiaries, distribution of assets, payment of outstanding debts and other tasks.
- Summary administration: This option is simpler, but only estates worth $75,000 or less can qualify. There is no personal representative. Beneficiaries can file an affidavit to receive their inheritance.
We sit down with you to let you know which type of probate is necessary. Then, we walk you through the steps and answer your questions about probate so you know what to expect and how much it will likely cost.
