What Is Ancillary Probate?

Ancillary probate takes place when a probate needs to be opened for a non-resident of Florida. Ancillary probate is necessary in Florida in three different circumstances:

  1. When a non-resident dies leaving assets in Florida;
  2. When a non-resident dies leaving credits due from residents in Florida; and
  3. When a non-resident dies leaving liens on property in Florida.

Florida law requires that a personal representative be appointed to administer an ancillary probate. The requirements to be a personal representative also apply to ancillary probate.
