Florida Probate – General Information

What is Florida Probate?

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 “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)
