Probate Work for Individuals
Everyone’s probate administration needs are different for many reasons. In many cases, a loved one passes on and leaves his or her estate behind. The individual’s estate then goes into “probate” before the individual’s assets are addressed and/or dispersed. This is when an attorney steps in. Furthermore, the probate process in Florida requires several steps:
- Order death certificates
- Gather and appraise property
- File the will in Florida probate court
- File final tax returns
In the State of Florida, the Court is involved in this process to ensure that either the will or Florida law is carried out in distributing the assets and addressing liabilities.
Even if your loved one left a will with specific instructions on what to do with their debts and assets, the act of carrying out those wishes can be extremely time-consuming and burdensome, especially while you are also grieving. Having an experienced attorney on your side to guide you can help make the process as easy as possible.
