Creditors have a right to file a claim with the Miami estate, asking the personal representative to satisfy the claim. If the personal representative denies the claim, creditors have a right to file a claim against the estate by filing a lawsuit with the Miami-Dade Probate Court when their claim has been denied. The Court will set a hearing date and listen to testimony and review evidence and make a ruling on whether the claim should be approved and paid by the estate or denied. Both the creditor or interested person making the claim, and the estate will typically have legal representation at the hearing.
