Personal Representative

Fantastic, thorough and caring Professional. An expert in her field, providing outstanding advice and legal services. This level of performance is the baseline standard throughout her office.

~ Bob K

I was so lucky to have found Ms. Webb. As my parents were aging, new legal and financial questions arose with which none of us had any experience. Ms. Webb spent nearly two hours with us answering questions and sharing her professional knowledge and advice. She created an archive of our important documents and followed up via email throughout the following week until she could be sure that we felt confident and satisfied in the decisions we needed to make. She genuinely cares about her community and applies her expertise to help others before herself. Trustworthy, dependable, and efficient, Heidi Webb is a true gem!

Does Florida Have a Minimum Amount Needed for Probate?

No. If someone had an asset in their name. The amount of the asset does not matter for Florida purposes, just the titling. That said, depending on the size of the estate, the probate process can differ considerably.

Florida has three probate processes to consider:

Disposition without Administration

This process is available in some extremely small estates and technically does not involve the probate process. It does, however, involve the Florida Court system. This process is for someone seeking to get reimbursed for a funeral bill or medical expenses within 60 days of death or a asset under $1,000.

Summary Administration

This process is a shorter probate process and only available when:

  • the probate assets are worth less than $75,000;
  • all of the decedent’s bills are paid or the decedent has been dead for more than two years; and
  • all of the decedent’s assets are known.

Formal Probate Administration

This option is the complete probate process of appointing the Personal Representative, dealing with creditors, publishing in the newspaper, etc. This is the option when assets exceed $75,000, and the estate has debts, heirs disagree, unknown assets, etc.
