WHAT IS POST-DEATH ADMINISTRATION IN FLORIDA?
Post-Death Administration is the process involving how a loved one’s financial affairs are handled after they’ve passed away.
- Heirs need to be identified
- Debts need to be paid
- Assets need to be organized
- Taxes need to be paid
- Inheritances need to be distributed
This process can look different for every family. Our Jacksonville lawyers offer unique programs and solutions for your family to ease your mind during difficult times.
If a loved one dies owning any assets at all, there is a process to deal with those assets to protect heirs and creditors. Their estate will have to be administered by a personal representative, executor, or trustee. The scope of the estate administration in Jacksonville will depend on several important factors.
Sometimes the Florida court system must be involved with the estate administration, depending on the type and ownership of assets. Certain types of assets must go through the probate court to pass to heirs, whether the deceased had a will or not.
If the deceased died with a trust in place, then a similar process is called trust administration. That is where the assets of the trust are handled and ultimately distributed to the trust beneficiaries. Sometimes trust administration in Florida involves probate estate administration too.
