When Do Estates Have To Go Through Probate In Florida?
The probate process distributes assets to a deceased person’s beneficiaries. All estates must go through the probate process in Florida. However, having a valid will makes the process easier and helps ensure the court follows your wishes.
What Happens If You Die Without A Will?
When someone dies without a will in Florida, the probate court will take full control of distributing their assets. Instead of determining which heirs receive certain assets based on the deceased’s wishes, Florida law makes the final determination. The decision under Florida statutes often does not align with what the deceased would have wanted.
How We Can Help
When you are the administrator or personal representative of an estate, an experienced probate attorney does more than just represent you in probate court. We act as a valuable adviser, removing some of the responsibility from the administrators of the estate.
We can help you with every step of the probate process, including:
- Ordering death certificates
- Filing the will with the local probate court
- Obtaining property value appraisals
- Filing the deceased’s final income tax return
Estate administration and probate have a lot of legal intricacies that can be difficult to follow, especially when you are grieving the loss of a loved one. We can help sort through the complexities to meet every specification and expectation the court may require.
