Personal Representative

Heidi is a bright star in the universe of Family Planning Attorneys!
Choosing a attorney to trust with your family planning is difficult at the least. We met with various attorneys in hopes the selection process would be easy. Until we met with Heidi we found small things bothered us about each attorney we interviewed.
When we met with Heidi we signed a contract at the end of the meeting. That was unusual for us because, trust me, we like to do due diligence in any decision we make. Heidi not only impressed us with her practical knowledge but her advice and rationale was on the mark.
Now that we have completed our planning I can say we were not disappointed and we feel like we we have someone that will stick with us and our family in case of the unexpected, or just the normal expectations of life and death.
Thank you Heidi for your caring and competence. 

~ Don and Pat T

Heidi brought ingenuity and intellect to our practice of law. She was always the “go to” person for handling difficult issues in a case. Heidi’s mastery over the law and all related issues was impressive. She epitomizes “grace under pressure”.

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.
