Fort Myers Ancillary Probate Lawyers

When a non-Florida resident passes away owning Florida real estate, a specific probate action must be followed according to Florida laws. This process, called ancillary probate, is required to pass the property on to beneficiaries or heirs.

Florida has a large retirement population. In addition, people in neighboring states and across the country buy and enjoy real estate here. As a result, ancillary probate is required, and it is best to work with Florida probate administration lawyers who understand the local laws, rules and procedures.

There are differences between standard probate and ancillary probate. For example, a formal proceeding might not be required if the property is worth less than a specific amount. There are other differences and nuances which can affect the time and cost involved. By working with our Florida probate law firm, you can be assured that we will advise you on all requirements and necessary steps.
