What Is Probate?
Probate is a court supervised method of identifying, gathering and distributing “probate assets” in accordance with a deceased individual’s will if a valid will exists on the date of death. If there is no valid will, then the individual’s probate property will be distributed according to the specific requirements set forth in the Florida Statutes and other provisions of Florida law.
As part of the probate process, the decedent’s assets will be used to pay for the attorney’s fees and costs of the probate and to pay for debts and taxes owed by the decedent.
During the probate administration process, the court will determine whether the deceased individual’s will is valid under Florida law. The court will also appoint a Personal Representative if the probate case has been filed as a “Formal Administration”. If the case has been filed as a Summary Administration then a Personal Representative will not be appointed.
