When an individual passes away and their name is on any type of asset, Probate is the formal process where the court will oversee those assets to ensure they are settled properly under Florida Probate Law, and to ensure that the heirs to the deceased receive their entitled share from any of those assets.
Some of the standard matters handled in Probate Court include admitting a decedent’s Will to determine if it is valid and has been executed properly. Another common matter in the Probate process is assigning an executor to the decedent’s estate to ensure that all of the decedent’s assets are gathered and that all beneficiaries are notified, and that the wishes of the decedent are properly carried out. There may also be debt involved with the assets of the decedent, in which case, a formal probate will ensure that all creditors and other entities are paid what is owed to them.
The actual process of a formal Probate is quite simple if all the matters from the case are uncontested and can be settled easily. Most families can maneuver through Probate with relative ease especially with the guidance of an experienced Probate attorney.
Probate can become quite complex, if there are no Estate Planning documents in place, or if there are any objections to a Will and Testament, or objections to the executor of the Estate. When there are claims and disputes regarding a Probate, Probate litigation ensues which can take a long time and be costly.
If you or your family have experienced any type of problem with the Probate process, it is important to contact an experienced Probate Litigation Attorney who can give you guidance and to help protect what is most important to you. Please call us today at 954-447-2580 to schedule an appointment. It would be our pleasure to assist you.
