Probate is the court-supervised process for identifying and gathering the assets of a deceased person (“decedent”), paying off the decedent’s debts, and distributing the remaining assets to the decedent’s beneficiaries/heirs. In Florida, probate law can be complicated, but it is a necessary part of the process in a number of circumstances. The Personal Representative of a decedent’s estate has a legal duty to administer the probate estate pursuant to Florida law. Some duties include filing tax returns; paying taxes; paying valid creditor claims; identifying, gathering, valuing and safeguarding the decedent’s probate assets; and distributing assets to the decedent’s beneficiaries/heirs. As a result, scheduling a consultation with an attorney who specializes in probate matters can make all the difference in the world, and end up saving you time, money and hassle.
