Florida Probate Administration

What is Probate?

Probate is the legal process of transferring property of a deceased person, called a decedent, to their heirs or beneficiaries. Whether the decedent had a will or not, probate is still necessary if the decedent dies with “probate assets.”

The length of the probate process may vary. On average, probate takes between six and twelve months to complete if no Federal estate tax return must be filed.
