Florida Probate Court System

Florida has one of the busiest probate court systems in the country, with a high number of cases and stringent requirements for probating estates and assets. It can be quite challenging for individuals to navigate on their own, which is why having an attorney specializing in probate proceedings is so critical. In fact, the State of Florida actually requires the assistance of an attorney for probate matters, mainly due to the difficulty of handling these matters.

Like other states, probate in Florida is handled through the circuit courts, with each county having its own specific court assigned to handle probate matters. This can be confusing for individuals to understand, as they are often not sure whether they need to be handling these matters through the main circuit court for their specific district or a different court within it instead. While a probate attorney will obviously know which court is applicable for their client, understanding the probate process and the system is important for everyone involved.

In order to help individuals find the right courts for their respective counties, we have divided up the different divisions of the Florida Circuit Courts, with their respective county probate courts. Below is a comprehensive list of every major probate courts in the State of Florida:
