The cost of probating a Will in Florida can be astronomical. That’s because attorneys charge $300-$500 an hour for their time, even if it’s just time spent talking to you on the phone or filling out forms.

Most of the hard work is done by the estate’s executor, (also sometimes called an administrator or personal representative), who is responsible for liquidating assets, getting appraisals, setting up bank accounts, paying debts and distributing assets. Unless it’s a very large estate, and/or the Will or its provisions are being contested, the probate process  or a Florida summary administration can be handled by an individual on their own. Many people handling probate without an attorney on their own find the assistance of a Florida probate service a great option to both save month and also to Probate A Florida Will Without Leaving Your Home to be very helpful.

WHAT IF SOMEBODY DIES WITHOUT A WILL?

When somebody dies without a Will, it’s called dying “intestate”. In such cases, the estate passes to the deceased person’s legal heirs based on the Florida laws of intestacy. The property of the estate is distributed to close family members and to more distant relatives if no close family can be found. If there is no family at all, the property of the estate goes to the State of Florida. Forms must be filed with the Florida court to request the appointment of an administrator for the estate, who will carry out the functions assigned by the court. If the estate is small and no contests are filed, it can save a great deal of money to handle the legal work on your own, with the help of an experienced Florida probate legal document preparer.

As an alternative, the probate process itself is expensive and lengthy, yet people don’t realize that there are a few simple ways to avoid probate in Florida.
