Probate Administration often involves complex considerations that need the guidance of an experienced estate planning and probate attorney. As a result, the Florida Statutes and Court rules require the assistance of a Florida attorney to administer a Florida probate estate.
There are different kinds of probate administration available in Florida. A Florida probate attorney can advise you as to what kind of estate needs to be opened in the Florida courts depending on the assets in the estate at the time of the decedent’s death.
Summary administration is permitted in Florida when the estate assets to be probated are less than $75,000.00. You should discuss administration of an estate as a summary administration and the pros and cons of doing so if the estate qualifies for summary administration with a Florida probate attorney before a summary administration is petitioned for before the Florida courts.
