Florida Probate Law provides several different methods for handling a probate estate. Depending upon many factors, the things left behind by your loved one may have to pass through probate. Probate refers to a process controlled by the court to pay debts, distribute assets, and provide notice to creditors and beneficiaries.  If you are the person designated to handle the probate, then you must search for both assets and creditors, and file different notices with different entities. Probate takes time and effort.  Depending upon several factors, Florida law provides for different types of probate proceedings. The law seeks to protect the rights of everyone involved in the process without making the procedures too great a burden for everyone.


How Long Does Probate Take?

In some cases, probate may be fairly fast (Summary Administration), while in other cases it may take many months (Formal Administration), and perhaps longer than a year in some cases. At times, we also have to deal with issues raised by a living trust, because some items were not placed into the living trust. I have experience handling probate, guardianship, and living trust issues. I offer a free consultation to discuss your concerns. You will have many questions following the death of your loved one. In some cases, the estate may not need to go through the probate process, while in others we may have to decide which type of probate best suits the particular facts in your case.
