What Is the Formal Probate Threshold in Florida?

Florida's probate threshold is currently set at $75,000. That means if the total value of a person's estate is less than $75,000, their heirs can inherit without going through probate.

Florida's probate laws are designed to be relatively simple and straightforward, so the vast majority of estates can be settled without any need for court involvement. However, for larger estates, the probate process can be more complex.

In these cases, it is advisable to seek the assistance of an experienced probate attorney who can help navigate the process and ensure that all assets are properly distributed.
