Probate is the court-supervised process used to administer a deceased person's estate. This is true if the person died with a will (testate) or without a will (intestate). The probate process is used to identify and gather the assets of the decedent and to identify the creditors and pay creditors with valid claims and finally, to distribute assets to the beneficiaries. Probate is necessary to transfer the ownership of the probate assets to the beneficiaries. There are three ways to process an estate in Florida.
- Disposition of Personal Property Without Administration
- Summary Administration
- Formal Administration
