Broward County Florida Probate
For Broward County and Non-Florida Residents


Broward County Florida Probate administration is a court-supervised process necessary for identifying and gathering the probate assets of an individual who has died, commonly referred to as the decedent. The court probate process ensures that claims of the decedent's creditors, expenses of administration and appropriate taxes are properly paid or addressed. Probate also serves as the process of distributing assets from the decedent's individual name to the proper beneficiary.

If the decedent owning property in Broward County leaves a valid will it must be admitted to probate in the Court. If the will is not admitted it will be ineffective to pass title to the beneficiaries. If the decedent has no will, probate is necessary to pass ownership of the assets to those persons who are to receive them under the Florida Intestate Succession laws.

Florida Ancillary Probate Administration is the process used when a resident of a state other than Florida dies owning real estate in Florida, as is the case with many non-Florida residents who own a second home, vacation home, vacant lot or timeshare in Florida and probate proceedings have already commenced in the Decedent’s domiciliary state (“state of residence.")

In order to pass the Broward County, Florida property to the heirs, a Florida Probate action is required to be opened. Florida Ancillary Probate Administration typically commences at the same time that the probate action in the state of Decedent’s primary residence is handled.
