The primary issues encountered during the probate process surround challenges of the validity of the Will and determining who should inherit what assets and property.

If there is no Will and no other estate planning documents (such as a Trust), or if these documents were not drafted properly, then determinations of who should inherit what can be left up to Florida state law and the court’s interpretation of what the law allows. This is why it is so important to have the aide of a skilled estate planning lawyer to thoroughly draft an estate plan.
