Probate is the legal process where the court sees to the administration of your assets upon your passing either according to the terms of your will, if you've created one, or according to the terms of the Florida intestate statutes if you've not created a will. So it's very important to make sure you've met with a qualified estate planning attorney to understand the differences between those two types of distribution.
