1. WHAT IS PROBATE IN FLORIDA?
 
Florida Probate is a court-supervised process for identifying and gathering the decedent's assets, paying taxes, claims and expenses and distributing assets to beneficiaries. The Florida Probate Code is found in Chapters 731 through 735 of the Florida Statutes.  The following probate information should help you understand how to probate a will in Florida.

Florida probate law establishes two types of probate administration for the administration of estates:

1. Formal Administration, with which most of this information deals.  Formal administration involves a probate with the asset value greater than $75,000, or in which creditors have claims against the estate.

2. Summary Administration involves the probate of an estate with less than $75,000 value (other than exempt property, including the Florida exempt homestead), and the creditors claims have been resolved and will be paid off in the summary administration process.

If you need the assistance of a Florida probate lawyer for either a Formal Administration or a Summary Administration or othewise for the administration of estates, please contact The Coleman Law Firm, PLLC, toll free at 866-510-9099, or Contact Us.  

If you are involved with a Summary Administration, we will work with you on a fixed or flat fee basis, so that you will know the complete cost of your probate before you start.

The Florida law of probate also establishes a non-administration proceeding called "Disposition of Personal Property Without Administration."

2. WHAT ARE PROBATE ASSETS? 

Generally, probate assets are those assets in the decedent's sole name at death or otherwise owned solely by the decedent and which contain no provision for automatic succession of ownership at death. For example:

• a bank account in the sole name of a decedent is a Florida probate asset and is subject to probate, but a bank account held in-trust-for (ITF) another, or held jointly with rights of survivorship (JTWROS) with another, is not a Florida probate asset and is not subject to probate;

• a life insurance policy, annuity or individual retirement account that is payable to a specific beneficiary is not a Florida probate asset and not subject to probate, but a policy payable to the decedent's estate is a Florida probate asset and is subject to probate;

• real estate titled in the sole name of the decedent or as a tenant in common with another person, is a Florida probate asset (unless it is homestead), and is subject to probate, but real estate held as joint tenants with rights of survivorship or as tenants by the entirety is not a Florida probate asset and is not subject to probate;

• property owned by husband and wife as tenants by the entirety is not a Florida probate asset on the death of the first spouse to die, but goes automatically to the surviving spouse.

This list is not exclusive but is intended to be illustrative of issues dealing with probate and property.

3. WHY IS PROBATE NECESSARY IN FLORIDA? 

Florida probate is necessary to wind up the affairs the decedent leaves behind. It ensures that all of the decedent’s creditors are properly paid. Florida 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 probate law provides for all aspects of the will probate process, but allows the decedent to make certain decisions by leaving a valid last will and testament.

4. WHAT IS A LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT?
 
A Florida last will and testament is a writing, signed by the decedent and witnesses, which meets formal requirements set forth by Florida probate law. A Florida last will and testament usually designates a personal representative to probate wills and to administer the probate estate and names beneficiaries to receive probate assets. A Florida last will and testament can also do other things, including establishing a trust and designating a trustee.

To the extent a Florida last will and testament properly devises Florida probate assets and designates a personal representative, the Florida last will controls over the automatic provisions set forth under Florida law of probate. In the absence of a valid Florida last will and testament, or if the Florida will fails in either respect, so that there is no will in probate, Florida probate law designates the beneficiaries and designates the way to select the personal representative.  Wills & probate go together - all wills are subject to probate.

5. WHAT HAPPENS TO PROBATE ASSETS IF THERE IS NO LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT?
 
Contrary to the belief of some, the decedent’s assets are not turned over to the State of Florida unless no intestate heirs can be found. If there is no will in probate, the probate assets of the decedent will be distributed to the intestate heirs provided by the Florida intestacy statute as follows: 

        • Surviving Spouse and No Lineal Descendants. If there is a surviving spouse and no lineal descendants, the surviving spouse takes all.

        • Surviving spouse and lineal descendants.

    1. If there is a surviving spouse and one or more lineal descendants (with the lineal descendants all being the lineal descendants of the surviving spouse as well as the decedent), the surviving spouse receives the first $60,000 of the Florida probate estate plus one-half of the rest of the Florida probate estate, and the lineal descendants share the remaining half.  A Florida probate lawyer can provide legal advice in determining the proper distribution pursuant to the Florida intestacy statute.

    2. If there is a surviving spouse and one or more lineal descendants (one or more of which lineal descendants are not also lineal descendants of the surviving spouse), the surviving spouse receives one-half of the Florida probate assets and the lineal descendants share the remaining half.

        • No Surviving Spouse, But Lineal Descendants. If there is no surviving spouse, but there are lineal descendants, the lineal descendants share the probate estate, which is initially broken into shares at the children's level, with a deceased child's share going to the descendants of that deceased child.

        • No Surviving Spouse, No Lineal Descendants. If the decedent left no surviving spouse or lineal descendants, the Florida probate property goes to the decedent's surviving parents, and if none, then to the decedent's brothers and sisters and descendants of any deceased brothers or sisters. The Florida law of probate provides for further disposition if the decedent is survived by none of these.

        • Exceptions to Above. The above provisions are subject to certain exceptions for Florida exempt homestead property, exempt personal property, and a statutory family allowance to the surviving spouse and any lineal descendants or ascendants the decedent supported. Regarding Florida exempt homestead, if titled in the decedent's name alone, the surviving spouse receives a life estate in the Florida homestead, with the lineal descendants of the deceased spouse receiving the Florida exempt homestead property upon the death of the surviving spouse. If there are no lineal descendants, the surviving spouse receives full ownership of the Florida homestead outright.  Florida homestead law is very complicated, and where matters involving the homestead of a decedent are concerned, we strongly encourage you to obtain legal advice from an experienced Florida probate attorney.

6. WHO IS INVOLVED IN THE PROBATE PROCESS IN FLORIDA? 

While there may be others, the following is a list of persons or entities often involved in the Florida probate process and to probate wills:

• Clerk of the Circuit Court  for Fort Lauderdale, Broward County, Florida, or the Clerk of the Circuit Court of probate in the county where the decedent died. (See Question 7).

• Circuit Court (acting through a Circuit Court Judge, the Florida probate judge, See Question 8).

• Personal Representative  or "executor" (See Questions 9 through 11).

• Florida Probate Attorney for the Personal Representative (See Question 12).

• Creditor Claimants (See Question 13).

• Internal Revenue Service (IRS) (See Question 14).

• Florida Department of Revenue (See Question 15).

• Surviving Spouse and Children (See Question 16).

• Other Probate Beneficiaries (See Question 17).

• Trustee of Revocable Trust (See Question 21).

7. WHERE ARE PROBATE PAPERS FILED IN FLORIDA? 

Florida probate court forms and other probate papers are filed with the probate Clerk of the Circuit Court, for Broward County, Florida, or in the Florida county where the decedent lived. A probate filing fee must be paid to the probate clerk to commence the Florida probate estate administration. The Florida probate clerk assigns a file number and maintains a docket sheet which lists all probate court forms, probate forms, and other probate records and papers filed with the probate clerk for that Florida probate administration.

8. WHO SUPERVISES THE PROBATE ADMINISTRATION IN FLORIDA? 

In the Florida legal system, a Florida Circuit Court probate Judge presides over Florida probate court proceedings to probate wills or if there is no will. The Florida probate judge appoints the personal representative and issues "letters of administration," also referred to simply as "letters," or "letters testamentary." This Florida probate document shows to the world the authority of the personal representative to act on behalf of the Florida probate estate for a will in probate. The Florida probate Judge also holds hearings when necessary and resolves all legal probate questions raised during the administration of the Florida probate estate by entering written directions called "orders."  The Florida probate code provides the probate calendar that is followed by the probate court and the other parties to the probate administration.

9. WHAT IS A PERSONAL REPRESENTATIVE (OR "EXECUTOR OF THE PROBATE ESTATE"), AND WHAT DOES THE PERSONAL REPRESENTATIVE DO?
 
For a will in probate, the personal representative is the person, bank or trust company appointed by the Florida court of probate to be in charge of the administration of the Florida probate estate. The generic term "personal representative" has replaced such terms as "executor of a will, executrix, administrator and administratrix."

The personal representative (executor of a will) duties and responsibilities in probate is directed by the Florida probate court and the Florida probate code to administer the Florida probate estate pursuant to Florida law of probate and the Florida probate rules. The personal representative's duties and responsibilities include to:

• Identify, gather, value and safeguard all probate assets, not just Florida probate assets, that are subject to probate.

• Publish a "notice to creditors" in a local Florida newspaper, giving notice to creditors to file probate claims and other papers or probate forms relating to the Florida probate estate. 

• Serve a "notice of administration" on specific persons, giving probate information about the Florida probate estate administration and giving notice of requirements to file with the court of probate any objections relating to the probate estate.

• Conduct a diligent probate search to locate "known or reasonably ascertainable" creditors, and notify them of the probate timeline by which their probate claims must be filed with the Florida probate court clerk of court.

• Object to improper claims in probate and defend law suits brought against the Florida probate estate on such claims.

• Pay valid probate creditor claims from the probate assets.

• File federal and Florida estate tax returns and income tax returns.

• Pay federal and Florida estates taxes and income taxes.

• Employ necessary probate professionals, such as the Florida probate attorney, to assist in the administration of the Florida probate estate.

• Pay probate administrative expenses.

• Distribute statutory amounts or probate assets to the surviving spouse or family.

• Distribute probate assets to probate beneficiaries.

• Close the Florida probate administration with the court of probate.

10. WHO CAN BE A PERSONAL REPRESENTATIVE PURSUANT TO FLORIDA LAW? 

• The personal representative in probate (executor of a will) could be an individual, bank, or trust company, subject to certain restrictions set forth in the Florida probate code.

• An individual who is either a resident of Florida, or is a spouse, sibling, parent, child, or certain other close relatives, can serve as personal representative under Florida law.

• A trust company incorporated under the laws of Florida, or a bank or savings and loan authorized and qualified to exercise fiduciary powers in Florida, can serve as personal representative (will executor).

11. WHO HAS PREFERENCE TO BE PERSONAL REPRESENTATIVE? 

• If the decedent left a valid Florida last will and testament, the designated personal representative nominated in the Florida will (executor of a will) has preference to serve in probate pursuant to the Florida probate code.

• If the decedent did not leave a valid Florida last will and testament, the surviving spouse has preference, with second preference to the person selected by a majority in interest of the probate heirs.

12. WHY DOES THE PERSONAL REPRESENTATIVE NEED A FLORIDA PROBATE ATTORNEY? 

In almost all instances to probate a will the personal representative must be represented by a 
Florida probate attorney. Many legal issues arise involving the Florida probate codes and the law of probate, even in the simplest Florida probate estate administration.

The Florida
probate attorney for the personal representative in probate provides legal advice to the personal representative on rights and duties under the Florida probate code and probate rules, and represents the personal representative (will executor) in Florida court of probate estate proceedings. The Florida probate attorney for the personal representative is not the probate attorney for the beneficiaries of the probate estate.

A provision in a Florida last will and testament mandating that a particular 
Florida probate attorney or Florida law firm be employed as probate or estate attorney for the personal representative is not binding on the personal representative to probate wills.

13. HOW ARE ESTATE CREDITORS HANDLED?
 
Prior to filing Florida probate proceedings to probate a will, a creditor can file a caveat with the Florida probate court. Upon publication of notice to creditors a creditor or other claimant may file a document or probate court form called a "statement of claim" against the probate estate with the Clerk of the Circuit Court where the probate estate is being administered. This claim is generally required to be filed with the probate court within the first three months of publication of a prescribed notice of administration in a countywide newspaper. This three-month probate timeline is often referred to as the "non-claim period." The personal representative (will exector) or any other interested person may file an objection to the statement of claim, after which the claimant must file a separate independent lawsuit against the probate estate to pursue the claim.

The personal representative is required to use diligent efforts to give actual notice of the Florida probate proceeding to "known or reasonably ascertainable" creditors, to afford them an opportunity to file creditor claims. A valid claimant is not viewed as an adversary of the personal representative but rather must be treated fairly as a person interested in the FL probate estate until the claim has been satisfied or otherwise disposed of.

14. HOW IS THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE ("IRS") INVOLVED? 

For federal income tax purposes, death triggers two things. It ends the decedent's last tax year for purposes of filing a federal income tax return, and it establishes a new tax entity, the "estate."

The personal representative may be required to file the following tax returns, depending on income of the decedent, income of the probate estate and size of the probate estate:

• Final Form 1040 income tax return, reporting income for the decedent's final tax year.

• One or more Form 1041 income tax returns for the probate estate, reporting income for the probate estate.

• Form 709 gift tax return(s), reporting certain gifts made by the decedent prior to death.

• Form 706 federal estate tax return, reporting the gross estate and deductions, depending upon the value of the gross estate.

The personal representative may be required to file other returns in probate. Additionally, the personal representative duties and responsibilities include dealing with issues arising from tax years prior to the decedent's death (including tax returns that were filed by the decedent or that should have been filed).

The personal representative duties and responsibilities in probate are to pay amounts due to the IRS from the decedent and the probate estate and may be personally liable for those taxes if not paid from estate assets. If a federal estates tax return is required to be filed, an estate tax closing letter is necessary to clear title to Florida real property, and in some instances in order to close the Florida probate administration with the court of probate.

15. HOW IS THE FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE INVOLVED? 

The personal representative is required to send a copy of the probate inventory to the Florida Department of Revenue. If a federal estate tax return is not required to be filed with the IRS, then the personal representative is required to record in the probate public records (and file in a formal estate administration) an Affidavit of No Florida Estate Tax Due. If a federal estates tax return is required to be filed with the IRS, then the personal representative is required to file a Florida estate tax return, Form F-706, with the Florida Department of Revenue."

Regarding Florida's intangible tax, the Florida Department of Revenue may review the probate inventory to determine whether the probate estate, or the decedent while alive, failed to file a required intangible tax return or to pay intangible tax.

For probate estates required to file a Florida estates taxes return, a nontaxable certificate or a tax receipt from the Florida Department of Revenue is required in order to clear title to Florida real property and in order to close a formal probate administration.

16. WHAT RIGHTS DO THE SURVIVING FAMILY HAVE IN THE PROBATE ESTATE?
 
Florida law and public policy protects the surviving spouse and certain surviving children from total disinheritance. Absent a marital agreement to the contrary, a surviving spouse may have Florida homestead rights, elective share rights, family allowance rights, and exempt property rights. In addition, certain surviving children of the decedent may also have Florida exempt homestead rights, pretermitted child rights, family allowance rights, and exempt property rights. The existence and enforcement of these rights is often best handled with legal advice from a Florida probate lawyer or estate attorney.

17. WHAT RIGHTS DO OTHER POTENTIAL BENEFICIARIES (OTHER THAN THE SURVIVING SPOUSE AND CHILDREN UNDER CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES) HAVE IN THE PROBATE ESTATE? 

Under the Florida law of probate, as with most other states probate laws, a decedent may entirely disinherit other potential beneficiaries.

18. HOW LONG DOES PROBATE TAKE IN FLORIDA? 

For Florida probate estates not required to file a federal estate tax return, the final accounting and papers to close the Florida probate administration are due within 12 months of issuance of letters of administration. This period can be extended by the court of probate, after notice to interested persons.

The federal estate tax return is initially due nine months after death and may be extended for another six months, for a total of 15 months. If a federal estates taxes return is required, the final accounting and papers to close the Florida probate administration are due within 12 months from the date the tax return is due. This date is usually extended by the probate court judge because often the IRS' review and acceptance of the estates taxes return are not completed within that period.

Estates that are not required to file a federal estate tax return and that do not involve probate litigation or estate litigation may often close within a probate timeline of five or six months.

19. HOW ARE PROBATE FEES DETERMINED IN A FLORIDA PROBATE? 

The personal representative, the Florida probate attorney and other professionals whose services may be required in administering the probate estate to probate a will (such as appraisers and accountants) are entitled by the probate laws to reasonable compensation.

The probate fees for the personal representative is usually determined in one of five ways: (1) as set forth in the Florida last will and testament; (2) as set forth in a contract between the personal representative and the decedent; (3) as agreed among the personal representative and the persons who bear the impact of the probate fee; (4) as the amount presumed to be reasonable as calculated under Florida probate code and the law of probate, if the amount is not objected to; or (5) as determined by the Florida probate judge, applying the Florida probate code and probate rules.

Likewise, the probate attorney fee for the
Florida probate attorney for the personal representative is usually determined (1) as agreed among the probate attorney, the personal representative and the persons who bear the impact of the fee, (2) as the amount presumed to be reasonable calculated under Florida probate code and Florida probate rules, if the amount is not objected to, or (3) as determined by the Florida probate judge, applying Florida probate law.

20. WHAT ALTERNATIVES ARE AVAILABLE TO FORMAL ADMINISTRATION? 

Florida law of probate provides for several alternate, abbreviated probate procedures to probate a will other than Formal Administration for the administration of estates.

Summary Administration is generally available if the value of the probate estate subject to the probate process in Florida (less property which is exempt from the claims of creditors) is not more than $75,000 or the decedent has been dead for more than two years.

Under Summary Administration, the beneficiaries who receive the probate estate assets remain liable for claims against the decedent for two years after the date of death. This probate timeline may be reduced in Summary Administration by publication of a notice of administration in a local newspaper

Another alternative to Formal Administration of estates is "Disposition Without Administration." This is available if probate estate assets consist solely of exempt property (as defined by Florida law and the Florida Constitution) and non-exempt personal property, the value of which does not exceed the combined total of up to $6,000 in funeral expenses, plus the amount of all reasonable and necessary medical and hospital expenses incurred in the last 60 days of the last illness.

If the decedent was not a Florida resident at the time of death, an alternate procedure may be used to admit the last will and testament to record in Florida. This procedure is used to establish title to Florida real property. When admitted to record in any Florida county where the real estate is located, the "foreign will" serves to pass title to the real estate as if the will had been admitted to probate. This procedure is available only if either two years have passed from the decedent's death or the domiciliary personal representative has been discharged and there has been no probate estate administration in Florida.

21. WHAT IF THERE IS A REVOCABLE TRUST? 

If the decedent created a revocable trust, in certain circumstances, the trustee may be required to pay expenses of probate administration of the decedent's estate and enforceable claims of the decedent's creditors. In any event, the trustee is required by the probate laws to file a "notice of trust" probate form with the probate court where the decedent lived, giving information concerning the settlor and trustee.

This material represents general legal information. Since the law is continually changing, some provisions may be out of date. It is always best to consult a Florida estate planning lawyer or Florida probate attorney about your legal rights and responsibilities regarding your particular case.
