Managing The Probate Process

For most estates, Florida’s probate process is not an overly complicated, lengthy or costly one. However, personal representatives and trustees frequently have questions or face challenges that are difficult to solve on their own.

At Frese, Whitehead, Anderson & Henderson, P.A., we handle probate and estate administration concerns in the Melbourne area and throughout the central Florida region. If you need assistance with the probate process or other matters, speak with our lawyers as early in your case as possible.

We Ease The Burden Of Administration Tasks

We guide fiduciaries – personal representatives (executors), trustees and guardians – through the required administration process. We represent beneficiaries of estates and trusts in connection with their rights and interests in estate and trust assets.​ Specific aspects of probate in which we can assist the estate representative and trustee include:

  • Review of the will or trust agreement
  • Creditor notification
  • Location and inventory of the assets
  • Settlement of debts with legitimate creditors
  • Distribution of the remainder of the assets in accordance with the decedent’s will, trust or Florida law
  • Ancillary probate
  • Probate administration
  • Trust administration

Due to our experience with estate planning and estate administration, we are familiar with many of the obstacles in your path. We can help you uphold your duties to the estate or trust.

There may be unique challenges to administering an estate. For example, surviving spouses in Florida are automatically guaranteed a 30% share of the majority of the deceased spouse’s assets even if the decedent provided for less than that percentage in his or her estate plan. However, you should not try to resolve highly complicated issues without the kind of experienced legal help our attorneys can provide.

To Our Valuable Clients:

The federal government has recently enacted legislation to assist citizens and businesses facing uncertain financial challenges due to COVID-19. We are here to help answer questions and guide you through the details of the various processes to procure financial assistance from our government. The acts are very new and more will probably be coming. But they currently provide for dollar for dollar tax credits for payroll for COVID19 related payroll, cash advances and loans that have tremendously favorable terms and in some cases, total forgiveness of the debt.

Please stay as safe as possible during this terrible crisis and if we can help you with questions about the new federal assistance laws, please contact us.
