Legal Question

Asked on: 8/16/12, 4:57 am

I am a resident of Jacksonville, FL whose mother passed away in January 2010 without a will. The only asset is the family home valued at $48,000.00. My father passed away long before my mother which leaves ten (10) children (all living). The children have discussed and agreed to have the home deeded to the surviving child who is already living in the residence in order to maintain the home, purchase insurance and continue living in the home. After doing research on the Probate Statutes for the State of Florida, I've determined that the only thing needed is a Summary Administration. I keep being told that I have to have an attorney complete the Probate process so I guess I need an affordable attorney. Please consider that whatever cost that's incurred is all mine. Is this something that I can get done quickly and affordably?
