If you have established an estate plan, we can ensure that your will or trust instructions are followed on your behalf. Your Florida estate is managed and distributed through a court-managed process called probate or estate administrations after you or a loved one passes away. Our Longwood, FL law firm is experienced with the Florida probate process and is here to work hard with your loved ones to navigate the estate administration process as efficiently as possible.
What is the Probate Process in Florida?
A probate is a court-supervised process to distribute assets to beneficiaries after your or a loved one’s death. Any assets owned in your name or made payable to your estate will go through probate.
