What are Probate Assets?

Probate assets are the list of assets that are solely owned by the deceased.  Probate is important in passing ownership of a decedent’s probate assets to his or her beneficiaries or heirs.

An Estate may be administered with or without a will or codicil.  If there is no valid will or codicil left, an intestate probate administration is necessary to transfer ownership of the deceased’s probate assets to those valid beneficiaries under the Florida Law.

We must also keep in mind that a formal probate administration requires the appointment of a personal representative or executor.  She/he will administer the decedent’s estate; handle the disposal and distribution of assets; and make sure debts are properly handled.

Probate Lawyer in Florida

A probate lawyer in Florida is crucial since the formal or summary administration of an estate is comprised of so many technical rules; this can be very exasperating for non-lawyers.  Additionally, Florida’s system is rather intricate, so having an attorney guide you through the process is ideal.  Certain counties also require standardized smart forms be used as pleadings. These documents are not always easy for non-attorneys to understand because of the lack of familiarity with the terms and legalese used.
