Estate administration in Jacksonville refers to the administering and closing of a deceased’s estate. An estate can consist of many different types of assets. The estate administrator is responsible for identifying and organizing the assets and developing a plan to make sure debts are paid and distributions are made to beneficiaries.
Probate is part of the more significant estate administration process, which handles the transfer of assets after death. Probate is a court process where a judge’s approval and court orders are needed to pass title to assets. While some types of estate assets must go through probate, other types of assets do not. In that situation, they will still need to be administered in Florida.
The estate administrator in Florida will have to do many of the same things required in a probate proceeding. Those processes include organizing the assets, notifying the beneficiaries, giving creditors notice and a chance to file a claim, paying the unpaid debts of the deceased, preparing an inventory of the assets, filing tax returns, and finally distributing those assets to the intended beneficiaries.
