What is Probate?
Each state has its own rules and requirements for probate proceedings. Probate is filed in the state in which you reside. In Florida, if your estate contains more than a total of $75,000, your attorney and personal representative will need to file formal administrative proceedings, regardless of whether or not you have a will. If you own property in states other than Florida, you may also need to file ancillary probate in those other states. There are measures you can take to streamline this process.
