The Probate Process in Florida

Probate is a process that takes place in Florida courts. It is important to have an attorney who is experienced with the entire system and knows what steps you must take in order to properly administer an estate. The steps involved with probate include:

  • Petitioning the court
  • Notifying the parties involved, including beneficiaries and creditors
  • Identifying and inventorying all assets of the estate
  • Collecting the required payments due to the estate
  • Paying creditors
  • Distributing the property of the estate
