If a loved one has passed, the last thing you need to deal with is the complex and often frustrating process of probate. Let an experienced probate attorney from Korshak & Associates, P.A., provide the knowledgeable guidance you require at this difficult time.
One of the ways that we can guide your case efficiently through the probate process is by determining the type of administration that is required. Many people are unaware that an informal probate process may be available in their case.
A Simpler Form Of Probate Administration
Disposition of property without administration is the most basic type of probate administration that is available in Florida. Small estates may be eligible for this type of administration if the estate consists of:
- Personal property that is exempt from probate under Florida law
- Personal property that is exempt from creditors' claims under the Florida Constitution
- Nonexempt personal property that does not exceed the amount of specified funeral expenses and reasonable and necessary medical and hospital expenses that were accrued by the decedent shortly before his or her passing [Florida Statute 735.301]
If your loved one passed away and left a relatively small estate consisting of personal property and other limited assets, it may be eligible for this simpler form of probate administration. Our attorneys can help you determine which type of administration is required for the probate of a loved one's estate.
