Probate questions and concerns can arise in a variety of curcumstances. The death of an owner appearing in the back chain of title may be devoid of necessary supporting documentation. A current transaction may depend upon the placement in the record of sufficient evidence to support a conveyance by a personal representative, or by survivors, free of creditor claims and estate tax liens. One may be called upon to "clear things up" after the death of a loved one even when a current sale is not anticipated. In Search of a Probate Paradigm is a three-hour seminar which presents a logical procedure that can be used to address marketable title issues related to interests that terminate at death, it will explore the nuances of ancillary administration, summary administration, formal administration, judgments against decedents, homestead, and Florida and federal estate tax concerns. Within each module will be a discussion of how time can heal more than just a broken heart. This is a "basic skills" seminar designed to serve the needs of transactional practitioners who do not regularly become involved in probate matters or estate planning services. This seminar is approved for continuing education with the Florida Bar, NALA, and the Department of Financial Services.
