florida Probate Litigation

The term "estate" is generally used in connection with probate administration, to refer to the administration of property owned in the decedents own name at the time of his or her death. This is very different for other property owned by the decedent as joint tenants with rights of survivorship, or bank accounts or insurance policies which name beneficiaries (other than the decedent's estate) are not probate assets. Probate involves the Florida court system however there is no reason why there must be a formal litigation.

Probate is simply the process by which a person's debts are paid and assets will be distributed upon death. There are times when people dispute how the assets should be distributed and this may result in probate litigation. A reputatle law firm will work with you in an attempt to negotiate rather than litigate.
