My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: FLORIDA
My mother just passed away and I have used all her assets to pay for furneral and burial expenses and she has no more assets. she has a couple of credit cards that have a balance over $2000 and some medical expenses but there is nothing left to pay with. I havent set up an estate after death because of her having no assets but what was in her bank account and just don see the point of incurring legal fees.
So my question is it ok not to pay for legal fees to setup an estate when there is nothing in it?
