If you were to suffer from a tragic accident tomorrow that resulted in death or incapacitation, would your family and loved ones be covered financially? If you answered no to that, it is imperative that you create a last will and testament.
In the state of Florida, the probate process requires that after someone dies, their outstanding debts be paid off and their remaining assets be accounted for. Without a last will and testament, your family and loved ones could be responsible for paying those expenses out of their own pockets, leaving them in financial shambles.
A probate lawyer can help get all your affairs in order, so there is a clear picture of where your assets will go after your death and how your property will get distributed.
Probate assets include:
Not only does a probate lawyer handle everything related to probate proceedings, they can also do everything from the payment of taxes and debts, to selling assets and distributing property as directed by the will.
