What is a will contest?

As an experienced Florida probate lawyer and attorney, we know how important it is for the probate estate administration process to be completed as soon as reasonably possible, and as efficiently as possible, regardless of whether the estate is simply to probate a real estate deed, or an complex estate that is subject to the
estate tax, or “death tax.”  Our probate lawyer and attorney provide our clients with complete and timely information regarding the status and activities of each probate case.  We are familiar with the Florida probate law, probate rules, probate courts and the probate forms necessary for complying with Florida probate law.

Our Florida probate lawyer and attorney counsel our clients on each phase of the probate estate administration process and provide direction for each step that must be taken.  Our probate lawyer, attorney, and paralegals promptly respond to all questions that are asked, and patiently provide our clients with a complete explanation of what needs to be done to comply with Florida probate law, and why.

Who pays for the estate attorney?

As an experienced probate lawyer and attorney we understand the emotional issues that become involved in probate, and probate litigation in particular, whether the issues involve will contests, will disputes, inheritance disputes, litigation for removal of a personal representative or executor from a probate estate, for removal of a personal representative for breach of fiduciary duty by the personal representative, or a will challenge based on irregularities in the formal requirements for the execution of a will, forgeries, the exercise of undue influence in the procuring of a will, the will maker's lack of capacity or inability to und
erstand the contents of a will, the improper administration of an estate by the personal representative, or disputes that arise between the surviving spouse and the children of previous marriages, especially where the Florida spousal elective share or an inheritance through intestacy may be involved. Our Florida probate lawyers and attorneys are also experienced in pursuing actions for abuse of a power of attorney.

Our legal fees for representing you in the administration of a probate estate or a trust administration will depend on the facts and circumstances of your particular case.  Often our lawyers will work on a flat fee or fixed fee basis.  Other times, a probate lawyer's or attorney's hourly rates are appropriate.  In appropriate probate or will contests litigation, our probate lawyers will consider working on a contingent fee basis, which means there is no fee if there is no recovery.  In particular, if your probate administration is for the sole purpose of a real estate probate, i.e, transferring title to real property, our probate lawyers usually will work on a fixed fee basis, so that you will know from the beginning exactly what your total cost will be for the Florida probate process.

We hope the
frequently asked questions and answers about Florida probate will help you gain an understanding of some of the issues involved in a Florida probate proceeding and will assist you in determining the proper course of action for you in your Florida probate matter.
