What is the goal of the probate process?

During the probate process, the ownership of the decedent's assets is transferred over to the beneficiaries. If your loved one dies with a will in place, the will must be submitted into probate court and deemed valid. However, if your friend or family member dies intestate, or without a will, then the probate court will have to gather up the assets, pay off the decedent's outstanding debts, determine who is entitled to receive the assets and then distribute them. Here at the firm, I have assisted countless clients through the probate process and I can guide you through every stage of your case. As a probate lawyer, I am highly adept in Florida law and I know how to resolve your case as quickly as possible so that you can retrieve the assets and begin the next stage of your life.
