When one thinks about probate administration, the word simple rarely -- if ever -- comes to mind. Most people tend to fear this process, as it can be long, drawn-out and somewhat complicated. However, in Florida there is a form of probate estate administration that can be fairly simple to complete.
In Florida, the most basic form of probate administration available is called the disposition of property without administration. Only certain types of estates will be eligible to take part in this particular probate process, however. In these cases, personal property must be exempt from probate and creditor claims. Any property that is not exempt must not exceed a certain value.
Overall, estates that will qualify for disposition of property without administration are relatively small.

Legal counsel is available to help you determine which type of probate is necessary to close out your loved one's estate -- if it is needed at all -- and can walk you through the process in its entirety.
