Florida Probate

If you are visiting this page because someone you loved has passed away, please accept our deepest condolences.  

Probate is the process of managing assets an individual owned in their individual name (i.e., not in Trust and not jointly with anyone else) upon their death.  For Florida residents there are basically three types of probate:  (1) disposition without administration, (2) summary administration and (3) formal administration. 

If an individual who resides in another state dies owning property in Florida, Ancillary Administration is used to administer the Florida estate.
