Understanding Summary Administration
Summary Administration is an expedited form of probate that can be used when the value of the deceased’s entire estate, excluding exempt property, does not exceed a certain amount or when the decedent has been deceased for more than two years.
When to Consider Summary Administration
Summary Administration can be considered when the estate meets the qualifications set by Florida law. It is typically appropriate for smaller estates or when the decedent has been deceased for a considerable period. We are here to help determine if Summary Administration is the right choice for your situation.
The Benefits of Summary Administration
Choosing Summary Administration can have several benefits, including shorter processing time, lower legal fees, and less complexity than Formal Administration. Our team will guide you through the benefits and potential challenges to help you make an informed decision.
The Process of Summary Administration
Despite being an expedited process, Summary Administration still involves several crucial steps, such as filing a petition, providing notice to creditors, and distributing the assets. We ensure these steps are completed accurately and efficiently.
