Types of Probate Law We Handle
Our expert Tampa probate attorneys can represent you in a variety of situations. Examples of our probate law practice include the items below.
A person’s estate needs to be administered after his/her death. The probate administration should follow the rules set out by the relevant Florida Statutes. Our Tampa probate attorneys can assist in the administration of the estate. Administration usually involves appointing a personal representative or executor. This person’s job is to handle the affairs of the estate. The personal representative might find the probate system complicated and require some help. Our probate attorneys are available as support and to provide the necessary legal advice.
Probate administration doesn’t always run as smoothly as people would like. When an issue arises, our Tampa probate attorneys are available to help. With their knowledge and experience, they can deal with a range of problems. Litigation related to probate is connected to the wishes of the decedent. Sometimes people may feel that the deceased was taken advantage of. They may also think that the estate’s personal representative isn’t fulfilling his/her duties. This is when it’s important to contact our firm and start talking to a probate attorney. He/She can provide assistance to resolve your dispute.
One of the types of probate challenges you might face is in regards to the distribution of the estate. You might be unhappy about the will and suspect that it does not distribute the assets in the estate as it should. You may want to challenge it on the grounds that the decedent lacked the capacity to sign it or was coerced. Another situation that might arise is elective share litigation. In Florida a surviving spouse should receive a certain proportion of the estate. An attorney can help to determine how much this amount should be.
Challenging a Personal Representative
We also help clients who wish to challenge a personal representative, such as an executor or a trustee. These people have a fiduciary responsibility and should be held accountable. If you feel that they are not carrying out their duties fairly, you might wish to challenge them legally. Some options include removing them as a personal representative and obtaining accounts for the estate. You can also seek reimbursement for losses to the estate. On the other side, the personal representative can take action if someone has deprived the estate of assets.
