Do I Need to Come to Court in Florida for Probate?
Not necessarily. If you are not the personal representative and are simply inheriting property, you likely will not need to go to court in Florida. Additionally, Florida offers alternatives to formal probate for estates with a smaller value. Summary administration is available when non-exempt probate property is valued at less than $75,000 and the decedent’s debts are paid off. Disposition Without Administration is another alternative that can be used that avoids court, but it is only available if the total non-exempt personal property is less than the funeral expenses and the amount of final medical expenses.
