If you have been named as Personal Representative or Executor for the estate of a Florida resident, this means you bear the legal right and responsibility of ushering the probate assets of the deceased through the process of distribution. The costs of the process, including legal fees and court costs, are to be paid out of the assets of the estate and not personally by the Representative. The procedure can be complex, and the attorneys of Harvin & Harvin, LLP, are available to walk you through the process.
If you have been named as Personal Representative or Executor for the estate of a non-Florida resident who passed away owning Florida property, then a process called Ancillary Probate Administration becomes necessary. If the deceased resided in another state but had, for instance, a second home in Florida, the disposition of that Florida real estate must be handled by a Florida attorney subject to Florida Probate laws, rules, and procedure. The attorneys at Harvin & Harvin, LLP, have represented clients with estates that contain property across Florida, the United States, and the world.
