Turn to this manual when a probate matter appears headed toward litigation. Leading Florida probate practitioners will guide you through the complex issues that arise in probate such as homestead, will construction proceedings, creditors' claims, and compensation disputes.

The Thirteenth Edition of Litigation Under Florida Probate Code discusses numerous recent statutory and rules changes and reflects the latest case law. This new edition also incorporates discussions of hot topics including:

  • Florida slayer statutes expanded to cover abuse, neglect, exploitation, or aggravated manslaughter of an elderly person or disabled adults.
  • The new Florida Community Property Trust Act went into effect July 1, 2021, and is codified in F.S. 736.1501–736.1512.
  • A new amendment to F.S. 733.6171 added a disclosure requirement for attorneys intending to rely on a percentage-based method of compensation.
  • Remote technology for jury trials began testing due to backlog in the Florida court system due to COVID-19.
