Probate Lawyer Florida

Probate is the court supervised process of transferring a deceased individual's property from the decedent's name to the name(s) of that person's heirs.

Probate is not always necessary. If the deceased person owned bank accounts or property with another person, the surviving co-owner will then own this property automatically. If a person dies leaving very few assets, such as personal belongings or household goods, these items can be distributed among the person's heirs without the supervision of the court. Sometimes probate is needed to:

  • Collect debts owed to the deceased person.
  • Clear title to land or stocks and bonds, or large bank or savings and loan accounts that were held in the name of the deceased person only, and put the title to these assets in the names of the heirs.
  • Settle a dispute between people who claim they are entitled to what the deceased person left behind.
  • Resolve any disputes about the validity of the deceased person's will.
