The phrase "Probate Administration" may give some people pause because probate administration and litigation are often touted as complex and difficult processes. The claim that probate administration is complex can be true in some instances. After all, ensuring the proper distribution of a deceased individual's estate should not be done carelessly, but it does not have to be difficult in any situation. Florida law is very clear on the probate process, and with proper understanding and legal assistance, you can handle probate litigation quickly and efficiently.
In many instances, the ease of the probate process is directly related to the amount of preparation that the individual who has passed away put into settling the affairs of his or her state. Legal documents such as wills and designations of trustees and beneficiaries can make many matters of estate administration very clear, which can streamline the probate process. However, even if an estate is effectively settled, that does not necessarily mean that surviving loved ones will not have to take action.
Perhaps the best example of how an estate must be settled comes in the form of debt settlement. Nearly every estate has some kind of debt or outstanding payments that must be addressed, and in most instances, creditors must be informed of the individual's passing. Settling outstanding debts with creditors is a critical part of the probate process, and is just one example of what lies ahead.
