Probate is a court process that involves identifying, gathering, and distributing assets titled in the decedent’s name alone and addressing any liabilities after you die. Even with a valid will, probate may still be necessary to pass ownership of probate assets to your beneficiaries. If you do not have a will, your assets will pass in accordance with the Florida statutes on intestate distribution.
