Probate Law can be Confusing
Linda S. Braswell, P.A. can ease your worries
Unless you’ve been through the process before or you’re knowledgeable about the system, probate court can be confusing. When you’ve lost a loved one, the last thing you want to think about is the distribution of assets and determining whether you have legal grounds for a summary administration.
Formal administration, also known as probate, is the legal proceeding of distributing the probate assets of your loved one when no will is present, the will doesn’t meet Florida’s legal requirements or the document is legitimately contested. Probate is used to confirm the validity of the will and pass the probate assets, or assets that are solely in the decedent’s name, to the beneficiaries. Probate is also used to ensure all of the decedent’s financial affairs are in order.
With more than 25 years of experience, Linda S. Braswell, P.A. will ensure the property of your loved one is properly disseminated and guide you through this difficult time.
