Orlando Probate Attorney

As an Orlando probate attorney since 2006, the Patten Law Firm has been assisting the residents of Orlando to navigate the confusing and complicated process of dealing with probate courts for over a decade.  When a person dies and assets are left behind, his or her estate must go through the probate process which is administered by an Orlando probate court.

The probate process includes determining if there is a Last Will and Testament and validating that document.  Additionally, the probate court will gather information on the decedent’s assets and determine if there was debt left behind that needs to be paid off.  Taxes also come into play and it needs to be determined if there are tax implications associated with the estate that need to be addressed. Finally, the assets left after taxes and debt will be distributed accordingly to the beneficiaries that are named in the estate.
