OP, I don't know about Florida, but I have done DIY probates in Maryland and Virginia. It is easy peasy, and the court people will most likely be very helpful. An attorney will charge you an enormous fee to do almost no work. So, do it yourself and good luck.

I have been trying to find the form on line, and I have had no luck... I have called and spoke the the Sumter County Clerks office, they were not helpful. They only told me that when I had the form filled out to bring it in and it would cost me 345.00 to file it and then wait for a decision.. it’s all very upsetting..
