Florida Probate Law Videos to Help You through the Process

What is probate? Clients ask us this question all the time. Probate sometimes has a negative connotation attached to it, as if it should be avoided at any cost. Depending on a person’s needs and life goals, that may or may not be true.

Kramer Law presents a series of Florida probate law videos to provide families with accurate information and to remove the legal confusion that surrounds probate and estate administration.

Put in the simplest terms, probate is the judicial (court) process of settling a person’s estate after death. When a family member passes away, some or all of their assets typically go through a court supervised process called probate. The assets and property of the decedent are identified and assembled. Any debts against the deceased must be settled. The balance of the estate is distributed to the decedent’s heirs or beneficiaries.

Probate in Florida generally requires the hiring of an attorney, as the process can become quite complicated.

The determination of which property passes through probate can take a degree of investigation. Assets and property affected by probate are those assets held solely in the name of the deceased at the time of death. Assets that are jointly owned with survivorship rights, or assets that designate a beneficiary (such retirement accounts or insurance policies) would not transfer through probate. Determining which assets are subject to probate can be a complex issue, and is an important part of the estate administration process.

The probate of an estate is a time-consuming and often expensive process, and is why many people wish to avoid probate altogether. Proper estate planning can allow you to arrange your assets so that the Florida probate process is bypassed.
