Are probate records available on the internet?
Some probate records are available online depending on the state. Florida makes certain information available, so you can go to the County Clerk’s website for the county in which the person passed away, and look up their name to see if an estate has been opened. You can only access limited information online. It will show you the name of the person who passed away, any attorney that’s involved, and the person who did the initial filing. If you want to see the actual documents, you have to visit the county courthouse.
