How Can A Probate Lawyer Help You?
Administering an estate or trust is a considerable task, particularly for family members facing grief after the loss of a loved one. A knowledgeable lawyer can be instrumental in guiding you through the various steps of the estate or trust administration process.
At The Law Office of Nicole C. Morris, P.A., our attorney provides over 25 years of combined experience helping families through the probate process. Our overarching goal is to complete the process as cost-effectively as possible. Our services include:
- Completing an inventory of assets
- Determining the value of assets
- Preparing applicable tax returns such as federal estate tax returns, state death tax returns and gift transfer tax returns
- Advising trustees and fiduciaries as to their legal responsibilities
- Assisting clients in meeting filing deadlines
Our lawyer handles both formal probate proceedings and summary probate proceedings. Further, if your loved one died without a will, our attorney can navigate the intestate succession process on your behalf.
Our lawyer also represents beneficiaries. Our experience in this field includes negotiating settlements of estates, protecting beneficiaries’ rights and advising in contested matters.
We also serve as personal representatives and trustees, or advise people who are serving in those capacities, for clients across Florida.
Was Your Loved One A Non-Florida Resident?
Ancillary probate administration is the process used when a resident of a state other than Florida dies owning real property in Florida. For example, your loved one may have owned a vacation home, a vacant lot or a time-share in Florida, and probate proceedings may have already commenced in the decedent’s state of residence. In order to pass the Florida real property to the heirs, a Florida probate proceeding must be commenced as well.
