Is Probate Necessary?

Probate is necessary to wind up the affairs the decedent leaves behind. Probate also serves to transfer assets from the decedent’s individual name to the proper beneficiary. Florida has had probate laws in force since becoming a state in 1845. Florida law provides for all aspects of the probate process but allows the decedent to make certain decisions by leaving a valid will.  Whether or not probate is necessary depends on a number of factors.
