Florida Probate Basics

Formal Administration in probate starts with filing the will (if one can be found), appointing a personal representative, filing an inventory, notifying creditors and beneficiaries, publishing a notice to creditors, reviewing to claims against the estate, objecting to improper claims, paying claims, accounting for all estate assets and liabilities, distributing assets, and closing the estate. Summary Administration does not require as many steps in court, but specific limitations apply to the size of the estate. In summary administration, the probate court does not normally appoint a personal representative. I have probated cases in North Florida, Central Florida, and South Florida.

How Long Does Probate Take?

Formal Administration, with its many steps in court, normally takes longer than Summary Administration.  In all cases, it takes a while for the case to work its way through the court administration process. Sometimes, the cases can be backlogged in court administration, and so cases filed today may not receive complete action for a few weeks or more.  In Formal Administration, it takes months for the process of notifying creditors to run through direct notice and publication in a local newspaper, which must be done. So Formal Administration takes at least four months, and probably longer, while Summary Administration will normally take at least a month, and probably more. If you have special needs to move a case quickly, prompt action by the attorney may expedite things some, although the timelines stated by law cannot be changed.
