Florida Baby Boomers and Probate

Florida Baby Boomers and Probate

As Florida Baby Boomers continue to age, there will inevitably be an increase in the amount of deaths in the United States, especially in Florida, where many baby boomers reside.

When a loved one dies, regardless of whether or not they have a will, the estate must go through a process called “probate,” with the exception of very rare cases.

If you have a family member who is a Florida baby boomer or older, then you need to start thinking about what you and your loved ones will do when they are gone, such as:

– Does your loved one have a will?
– Has your loved one appointed a personal representative for their estate?
– Does your loved one own property in multiple states or countries? If so, each may have to be
probated individually.
– Does your family have a trust that applies to the probate process

Many Florida baby boomers are “snowbirds” who are also residents of other countries or states, where they own assets. In these cases, the decedent’s estate must be probated in more than one court.

If you have recently suffered the loss of a loved one who passed away in Florida, or possessed assets, such as a house, in Florida at the time of their death, then contact Boyer Law Firm today to see how our Florida probate attorneys can assist you.
