What Is the Probate Process in Florida?
Probate is defined as the court-supervised process of distributing the assets of a deceased individual. It also includes paying off their debts.
The assets that are included in the probate process may include:
- Their Financial Accounts
- Life Insurance Policy
- Real Estate Solely in Their Name
The personal representative is required to have attorney representation and should employ an attorney that will walk them through this, sometimes confusing, process.
How Long Does Probate Take in Florida?
The probate process is different in every state. There are a variety of factors that determine the kind of process you are dealing with and how long you should expect to complete the probate process.
