Wills & Probate

Is it ever “too late” to start probate?

No, there is no deadline to open a probate in Florida.  A Will by law must be filed by its custodian in the appropriate county clerk record office within 10 days of passing, however. Frankly, if there is a need to open a probate case, that need never goes away, the situation just becomes more and more complicated.
