Probate Diagram

Copyright 2022 by St. Petersburg probate attorney James W. Martin.

This is a sample diagram depicting the Florida probate process, assets, and debts of a Florida resident decedent to assist Florida probate lawyers in explaining the Florida probate process to personal representatives, beneficiaries, creditors, and clients.

This form is for general background and educational purposes, is not legal advice, and does not create an attorney-client relationship. No form should be used unless the lawyer understands it and decides that it applies to his or her law practice and to the facts in the particular case. Each lawyer’s practice differs in some respects, and all cases differ, so the lawyer should plan to make changes to this form accordingly.

A prior version of this form was published in the August 2008 edition of ALI-ABA The Practical Lawyer and the February 2010 edition of The Florida Bar Journal as part of his article “Ten Tips for Handling Complex Probate”.
