Florida Probate Exempt Property Definition

Exempt property:

Florida law (Florida Statute 732.402) provides the right of a surviving spouse or children to receive tangible personal property such as furniture and furnishings within the homestead property up to $10,000 as well as the automobiles regularly used by the decedent if they are not devised to someone else. These properties are not subject to any claims except those with perfected security interests on them. Those entitled to such designation may be required to file the probate forms to declare such property as exempt within 4 months of publishing notice of administration of the probate administration. A surviving spouse and/or children are also entitled to a designation of homestead property that the property is exempt from creditors.
