The loss of a loved one is a difficult time. But when grief and acceptance are compounded by a confusing and lengthy court process and a range of financial and practical challenges, it can become overwhelming. Those left behind must wrap up the affairs of their loved one – identifying assets and heirs, paying liabilities, distributing property, and working through an unfamiliar and complex probate process.
At Southwest Florida Estate Planning, PLLC, we guide our clients through the entire probate administration process, standing by their side and bringing clarity, finality, and peace of mind to those still processing their personal loss.
The Florida probate process is the court process of identifying, gathering, and distributing your assets and addressing any liabilities after you die. Even with a valid will, probate is still necessary to pass ownership of probate assets to your beneficiaries. Without a will, probate is required to pass ownership of your assets to those persons who are to receive them under Florida’s laws of intestate succession.
Every client and every family is different. That’s why we develop individually-tailored approaches to the probate process that accomplish each family’s specific goals and bring closure and certainty to what can be a frustrating procedure. We’ll take the time to address any questions and concerns you may have and be there for you both as trusted counsel and steadfast advocate.
