Yanitza Schoonover is an experienced Cutler Bay probate lawyer who focuses her practice on summary administration, formal administration and estate planning matters.

When a loved one passes away, family members of the decedent try to put all of the decedent’s affairs in order, this process can become time consuming and confusing. Sometimes, the family members must go through the court and go through a process called probate. The probate process can be very emotional, time consuming and costly, which is why it is important to hire a Cutler Bay probate attorney that can help and guide you through this process.

In Florida, there are primarily two types of administrations- Formal Administration and Summary Administration. A Summary Administration may be appropriate if the total value of the decedent’s assets that are subject to probate are $75,000.00 or less, or if the deceased person passed away more than two years from the filing date. However, just because the estate may be eligible for a summary administration it does not necessarily mean that it is the best choice.

A Formal Administration is typically needed when the assets of the deceased person are in excess of $75,000.00 and the person has been deceased for less than two years. There are many different factors that determine which estate would be best for that individual decedent’s estate. It is important to contact an attorney who is well versed in probate in Florida to help with the decision of which estate to open. The length of time to complete either one of these estates vary.

A Cutler Bay probate lawyer prepares all of the necessary documents for either a summary administration or a formal administration. The probate attorney also guides the client through the process and manages the case to make sure all requirements are being met and helps with what can seem to be a complicated and overwhelming process.

Cutler Bay Probate & Wills Attorney

Cutler Bay is an incorporated town in Miami-Dade County, Florida established in 2005, with a population of approximately 45,425 as of 2020. With 45,425 people, Cutler Bay is in 9th place of the top 10 most populous municipalities of the 34 municipalities that make up Miami’s urban core, it is the 33rd most populous municipality out of the 163 municipalities that up Miami Metropolitan Area and Cutler Bay is also the 88th most populated city in the state of Florida out of 919 cities. The borders were established as running from SW 184th Street (Eureka Dr) east of US 1 to the coast, and north of Black Point Marina, at 25°34′50″N 80°20′48″W. The town’s boundaries include the northeast section of Biscayne National Park, areas formerly known as Cutler Ridge to the west, as well as the neighborhood and former CDP of Lakes by the Bay to the east.
In August 1992, Hurricane Andrew made landfall near the area and caused extensive destruction. Lakes by the Bay was one of the areas of Miami most affected by Hurricane Andrew, and most homes and businesses in the area were completely destroyed. The area has since been rebuilt. Cutler Ridge, an ancient coral formation, stretches from south Miami, where it rises approximately 22 feet, through the Cutler Bay area, at a height of 14 feet, to Homestead, Florida, where it is about 8 feet. Cutler Ridge has been incorporated into the hurricane emergency plans for the area as lands east of the ridge are subject to storm surge, but areas west of the ridge would generally be protected. Due to Cutler Bay’s position in a flat, low-lying coastal wetland area on Biscayne Bay, the area is prone to flooding. During the rainy season, Cutler Bay’s many canals, channels, and lakes are frequently full of water, and the groundwater table also is full and close to the surface. Flood hazards include rainfall from tropical storms, hurricanes, and other heavy rain events. Many Cutler Bay residents family members end up having to go through the probate courts in order to complete their family members estates after their passing. If the residents of Cutler Bay would need to go through probate they will be using the Miami Dade Probate Court for any of their probate matters. They have several procedures that were put into place to allow the probate cases to be completed in a timely manner. Miami’s probate court has many cases that go through the probate process regularly, however, as busy as the probate court system is in Miami their system is very user friendly to navigate through.
