Florida Probate administration is a court-supervised process necessary for identifying and gathering the probate assets of an individual who has died, commonly referred to as the decedent. Probate also serves as the process of distributing assets from the decedent's individual name to the proper beneficiary.The court probate process ensures that claims of the decedent's creditors, expenses of administration and appropriate taxes are properly paid or addressed.
If the decedent leaves a valid will it must be admitted to probate in the Court. If the will is not admitted it will be ineffective to pass title to the beneficiaries. If the decedent has no will, probate is necessary to pass ownership of the assets to those persons who are to receive them under the Florida Intestate Succession laws.
