Jeffrey Skatoff recently published an Article entitled, Guide to Surviving Spouse Rights in Florida, Florida Probate Lawyers (November 15, 2016). Provided below is a summary of the Article:
Florida law grants surviving spouses a number of important rights and benefits. With short deadlines in probate, it is important to effectively secure the rights of a surviving spouse within the timelines provided by statute to ensure the surviving spouse is protected and receives all he or she is entitled to under Florida law. The failure to meet one of the probate deadlines can cause a surviving spouse to lose one or more spousal entitlements.
