What is probate?

When a person dies in the state of Florida, the court can supervise the payment of any outstanding debt followed by the distribution of your remaining assets. You can refer to Florida's probate laws in Florida Statutes Chapters 731 through 735 and Florida Probate Rules, Part I and II (Rules 5.010-5.530). It is possible to plan ahead in order to spare your family the trouble and expense of the probate process. In that regard, there are several methods that may allow you to do so, including:

  • Setting up joint ownership accounts
  • Designating your bank accounts as payable-on-death

These two strategies can allow your chosen beneficiary or beneficiaries to receive assets automatically upon your death. Better yet, you can also set up a LIVING TRUST, which allows your designated successor trustee to supervise the administration of your assets instead of the probate court.
