Probate Administration And Litigation Firm Serving Central Florida

The "probate of will" means all steps necessary to establish the validity of a will and to admit a will to probate. A personal representative is the fiduciary appointed by the court to administer the estate. Although the decedent's last will and testament may appoint you as the personal representative of his or her estate, you do not have the authority to act as personal representative until you petition the court and are appointed as personal representative by the court.

Every personal representative must be represented by an attorney unless the personal representative is the "sole interested person" or is an attorney.

Generally, probate is not a complicated process with the help of an experienced probate attorney. From law offices in DeLand, Taylor and Nordman, P.A., is regularly involved with probate matters throughout Central Florida, including the following:
