Paying creditors and the IRS is part of probate

Before an estate can be formally administered, there are certain things the deceased's personal representative will need handled first. In Florida, probate is often necessary in order to fully and adequately close out an estate. During probate, the decedent's family members will have the opportunity to file objections to any claims anyone makes on the estate if they feel it is appropriate. Creditors and the IRS will also have the chance to collect any funds owed them.
