Compassionate, Experienced Guidance Through The Probate Process

When a person dies, what happens next? Sometimes, the probate court will need to be involved; sometimes, it won’t. Whether probate is necessary and what kind of probate is needed is best answered by a probate attorney. In Florida’s Treasure Coast region, you can find the help you need at Erin Kirkwood Law, PLLC.

Probate Requirements Depend On The Existence Of A Will

If a person dies without a will (referred to as dying intestate), Florida law designates who inherits, and a probate case will usually need to be opened. The type of probate and the cost depends on how much property the person owned. If a person dies with a will, probate is sometimes necessary as well. If there are no disputes amongst family or others, probate usually does not require anyone to physically go to court. Attorney Erin Kirkwood will guide your family through the process and file all the necessary paperwork.
