Florida Rules of Probate Procedure


Schedule a Tour of the Probate Department:

The Clerk of the Circuit Court and Comptroller offers the legal community an opportunity to tour the Probate operations at the Clearwater and St. Petersburg courthouses. The tours include an overview of document imaging, processing of new cases and, at the Clearwater location, the audit of estates and guardianship cases. For further information or to set up an appointment, visit the Probate Tours page.


Helpful Resources:

Florida Probate Rule 5.030 requires an attorney for many Probate and Guardianship cases. Even those Probate matters that do not require an attorney, may be quite complicated for a pro se litigant. Unfortunately, our Self Help Center is not able to assist with Probate matters. However, there are low and no-cost legal assistance options:

Community Law Program - (727) 582-7480
Clearwater Bar Referral - (727) 461-4880
Gulfcoast Legal Services - (727) 443-0657 or (727) 821-0726
