An Overview of the Probate Process in Boca Raton

There are several steps involved in this process. First, a previously named executor or an interested party applies to become a personal representative of the deceased person’s estate. If approved, this person will be issued Letters of Administration and will be given the authorization to settle the estate. If the deceased person had created a will, it must be submitted to the court to be examined. If a person created their will with witnesses present, with notarized statements signed by these witnesses, the person’s will can be considered “self-proving” and does not require court examination.

Once a will has been submitted, the representative will gather and inventory a person’s assets, pay any debts or taxes that may be outstanding, and eventually oversees the distribution of property and assets to the rightful beneficiaries. Once this has been completed, an official report containing all information regarding the handling of the deceased person’s estate must be submitted to the court. At this stage, anyone with an objection can voice their opinion in court.

Among other legal details, we can help you:

  • Prove the validity of the decedent's will
  • Categorize and appraise the deceased’s property
  • Settle any debts of the decedent
  • Distribute property in compliance with either a person’s will or state law if no will is present
