Here is some basic information to get you started:

Probate is the judicially-supervised disposition of a deceased person’s real and personal property. Typically, debts and taxes are paid out of the estate first, with remaining assets being divided among the beneficiaries or heirs of the departed. Probate in Florida typically falls within two main categories – Formal Administration (for estates with assets that exceed $75,000 in non-exempt assets) and Summary Administration.
