Florida Probate, Will & Estates Law Firm


The term "estate" is generally used in connection with probate administration, to refer to the administration of property owned in the decedents own name at the time of his death. By contrast, property owned by the decedent as joint tenants with rights of survivorship, or bank accounts or insurance policies which name beneficiaries (other than the decedent's estate) are not probate assets.

Here are some useful links which are related to Florida Probate, wills and estates.

Estate lawyers representing beneficiaries, heirs, charities or family members should first attempt to negotiate an honest, fair and prompt response to any estate dispute or probate problem. Whether a will contest, trust litigation or probate lawsuit, cases resolved outside of litigation need an experienced probate attorney who will structure the settlement to protect the client's rights and advance favorable settlement terms, taking into account the tax ramifications of any settlement. However, when a family member, second spouse, dishonest neighbor or home health care aid improperly places himself into a Last Will and Testament or Revocable Trust and that defendant refuses to negotiate fairly, it may become necessary for an estate lawyer or probate attorney to litigate to have your inheritance returned. Whether an estate dispute rises to the level of a will contest is an issue to be determined by an experienced estate lawyer, who can honestly evaluate the merits of the case with a client. In a Last Will and Testament dispute, an heir usually has some basic facts to support he has been unfairly omitted from the will, removed from the trust, or not included in the estate administration or probate process. An experienced probate lawyer must investigate these facts. to determine whether a case exists. A good, estate lawyer combines the client's beliefs with the opinion of the estate or probate attorney. The attorney adds the Florida statutory and case law that establishes rules regarding probate litigation and grounds for contesting the validity of a will. Together these rules will assist the client in making the final decision on whether to retain an estate attorney.
