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. The court probate process ensures that claims of the decedent's creditors, expenses of administration and appropriate taxes are properly paid or addressed. Probate also serves as the process of distributing assets from the decedent's individual name to the proper beneficiary.

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.

When a non-Florida resident owns property in Florida and passes away, the property is subject to Florida Probate laws and rules, which must be administered by a Florida Court in the county or judicial circuit where the property is located. In order to pass the Florida property such as the Florida residence or Florida vacant land to the lawful heirs or beneficiaries, a Florida Probate action is required. This action is properly referred to as Ancillary Probate Administration. Probate Attorney Eric S. Kane specializes in handling Florida Ancillary Probate Administration. Mr. Kane frequently represents clients who live outside of Florida but have a need to commence Florida Probate Ancillary Administration.

Florida Ancillary Probate Administration is the process used when a resident of a state other than Florida dies owning real estate in Florida, as is the case with many non-Florida residents who own a second home, vacation home, vacant lot or timeshare in Gadsden County or elsewhere in Florida and probate proceedings have already commenced in the Decedent’s domiciliary state (“state of residence.")

In order to pass the Gadsden County, Florida property to the heirs, a Florida Probate action is required to be opened. Florida Ancillary Probate Administration typically commences at the same time that the probate action in the state of Decedent’s primary residence is handled.
