There are two reasons to avoid probate in the State of Florida. The first is when you create a revocable trust. Those assets are distributed through the trust agreement and avoid the probate process in the County Courthouse. That saves you lots of time, and lots of money. The second most important thing, the timeliness of the probate process, and avoiding that probate process can get the assets in the hands of your beneficiaries much quicker, and at much less cost than going through the probate process through a will.
