In the State of Florida, there are two main types of probate administration.
Summary Administration and Formal Administration.
In the State of Florida, a Summary Probate Administration can only be used under specific circumstances:
A Summary Probate Administration will take less time than a Formal Administration; approximately 3 to 5 months.
A Summary Probate Administration will generally cost much less than a Formal Administration. This is because of less work, paperwork, and legal services to finalize the Probate Process.
However, creditor issues, potential estate litigation, and challenges of a Last Will and Testament may be more common in a Summary Probate Administration.
In a Summary Probate Administration, all assets must be identified and accounted for before filing. For this reason, it may be extremely beneficial to have items and assets of your estate detailed in your Last Will and Testament.
