What is Probate Law?
Probate law is when the court recognizes a valid will. A will is a document that expresses a person’s wishes for handling their property after they die. An “intestate” estate, is when someone dies without a will.
Chapter 731 of the Florida Statutes is the Florida Probate Code. This Chapter gives the rules for probate cases. An intestate estate is controlled by Chapter 732 of the Florida Statutes. The shares of the spouse and other heirs are controlled by these rules.
