What happens during probate?

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)
