Divorce and Florida Estates – Who Gets Cut Out?

In Florida, divorce law or family law can coincide or conflict with the state law. Consider these circumstances. If somebody who just passed away was divorced, that person who died may still owe alimony or property distribution to the spouse that was divorced. In which case, that person is a creditor. And the estate is going to determine whether that ex-spouse can get some property or not. But think about this, if you’re going through a divorce and one of the parties dies, what happens? Do you administer the estate? Are you still married? Or should you be considered a divorced spouse? Find a probate litigator that not only understands the state litigation but also family law litigation.
