The Dangers of Postponing the Creation of Your Will
Either you decide how your estate is handled upon your passing or the courts will decide. Unexpected, estranged family members can create chaos trying to steal the bulk of your estate from those who you wish to be the beneficiaries.
Furthermore, beneficiaries may be forced to wait far longer than necessary before matters can be resolved. In some situations, they may become embroiled in disputes or litigation over the disposition of the estate.
If you are a single parent, the courts will decide who will raise your children if something happens to you.
Most states have specific laws requiring anyone in possession of a will to file it as soon as possible. In the state of Florida, a will must be filed with the local circuit court within 10 days of learning about the death whether or not probate is necessary. During the same time as the filing, an application or petition to open probate of the estate.
In some places, it’s also required to record the death certificate as well.
The petition form and process may vary from state to state. In Florida, there is an option to accelerate the probate process with a Summary Administration if the estate is worth less than $75,000 or if the decedent has been deceased for more than two years.
Otherwise, a formal administration petition is filed.
