3 Questions Answered
Q. What percentage if an estate does a substitute PR get paid?
A: 3%, plus potentially an hourly rate for extraordinary services.
Q. Dad died 09 will origin Florida never probated, mom 2014 no Will Florida property I paid taxes can I claim ownership?
A: If your dad dies first, his will will control what he owned when he passed. If he left everything to your mom, her will controls the assets after her death. If she died without at will, her estate will pass "intestate" as laid out in this flowchart: https://www.floridaprobatelawgroup.com/files/2021-intestate-succession-flowchart.pdf
Q. My brother died. He was never married and had no children. Both parents are dead. He had 5 surviving siblings.
A: Yes, the deceased sister's children are entitled to money (assuming there is no will directing otherwise). Specifically they will split 20% (their mother's share if she was living). When someone dies without a will in Florida their estate goes through "intestate succession." This flowchart breaks down the chain of intestate succession in Florida: https://www.floridaprobatelawgroup.com/files/2021-intestate-succession-flowchart.pdf
