Florida law grants surviving spouses many important rights and benefits. Because there are express deadlines in probate, it is important to effectively secure the rights of a surviving spouse within the timelines provided by statute to ensure the surviving spouse is protected and receives all he or she is entitled to under Florida law. The failure to meet any one of the Florida probate deadlines may cause a surviving spouse to lose one or more of his or her spousal entitlements.
