The Estate Planning Firm represents individual and corporate fiduciaries through the probate process. The death of a loved one is a very difficult time for the family. Our firm can help by handling the legal matters and making sure that the Personal Representative fulfills his or her responsibilities and duties. Probate is the legal process in Florida by which the decedent’s debts are paid and estate assets are transferred to the decedent’s beneficiaries. In Florida, there is a simplified form of probate, known as a summary probate, which may be available if a decedent passed away with estate assets totaling less than $75,000. An ancillary probate is appropriate when a decedent who is a resident of another state dies owning real property in Florida.
