Even when there is a will in place, the heirs or personal representative will need to go through probate in the proper court. This process ensures that estate assets are distributed in accordance with the individual’s wishes. In the event an individual has no will or trust, the courts will also determine how assets will be distributed based on Florida law.
This process can be complex and we understand after the loss of a loved one, and in many cases, the representative prefers to seek legal assistance to ensure everything is done properly and according to their loved one’s wishes.
