What Is Probate?

Answer by Miami Probate Attorney Phillip B. Rarick Esq.

Probate is the legal process through which the court makes sure that, when you die, your Will is legally valid, your debts are paid and your assets are distributed according to your Will and Florida law. It is a bureaucratic, costly, and time consuming procedure to transfer title from your name to your beneficiaries.
