What is Probate?

Probate is the legal process of identifying the assets of the deceased person (aka “the decedent”). It often involves handling the decedent’s debts, including potential tax issues, and distributing the probate assets to the heirs. In Florida, probate administration is a court supervised process requiring an attorney in most cases. Whether the decedent has a Will can greatly impact how the probate process is administered. Determining whether the decedent had a valid Will may be also be a part of the probate process.
