Probate and Estate Planning Aid in Fort Myers
Have you recently lost a loved one? If so, their estate may have to pass through the probate process. Depending on the personal representative’s experience and the size of the estate, the personal representative may require probate assistance. Probate is the process of validating a loved one’s will in court, and gathering, inventorying, and distributing their assets and properties according to their will or state law. If a person dies without a will, which is also known as dying intestate, the personal representative must divide a person’s estate according to Florida State laws. During probate administration, the personal representative must gather and inventory the
decedent’s assets and properties, pay debts and taxes, and distribute the estate to beneficiaries and heirs. It may be a tedious and time-consuming process, and if a personal representative does not have probate experience, they may wish to hire a Fort Myers probate lawyer from Lindsay & Allen.
