Florida Probate Summary Administration

In Florida probate, summary administration is a quicker, more simplified alternative to a formal probate proceeding.

Well-suited for smaller estates, summary probate administration is available if the value of the estate subject to probate is less than $75,000, and the decedent had no outstanding debt. The value of the homestead is in addition to the $75,000 cap; therefore, the estate may still be substantial.

Summary administration is also used in cases when the decedent has been dead for more than two years. In summary administration, a personal representative need not be appointed.
