What Is Probate?

The Florida Bar’s Consumer Pamphlet: PROBATE IN FLORIDA, defines probate as, “a court-supervised process for identifying and gathering the assets of a deceased person (decedent), paying the decedent’s debts and distributing the decedent’s assets to his or her beneficiaries. In general, the decedent’s assets are used first to pay the cost of the probate proceeding, then are used to pay the decedent’s outstanding debts, and the remainder is distributed to the decedent’s beneficiaries.”

Why Do I Need A Probate Attorney?

Most people remain completely unaware of the procedures on how one can inherit or transfer property of the deceased. There are laws governing the probate process and it is always advisable to use an attorney when law is involved.

Bullard & Mulkey, P.A. provides the knowledge to expertly guide you through the probate process, no matter if it’s for a formal probate administration or a summary probate procedure.
