Florida Probate Law

After an individual dies, all assets of the decedent must be transferred out of his or her name. Assets that are jointly owned, have a beneficiary designation or that are payable on death, do not have to go through probate. However, all other assets that are titled solely in the decedent’s name must go through the probate legal process and this can often take between six (6) to twelve (12) months.

How We Can Help

An attorney’s assistance in the probate process is vital. For instance, our law firm understands how best to “marshal” the assets, i.e., determine which assets are indeed part of the estate; how to properly file an Inventory and Appraisal of the assets; when, and in what manner, to pay the estate’s taxes, debts, and remaining liabilities; and how best to distribute those assets remaining in the estate’s inventory after all other processes have been concluded. Di Pietro Partners, LLP represents beneficiaries, personal representatives, trustees, creditors, or other interested persons throughout Florida.
