Best Answer

Yes it is necessary to see an attorney because the deceased has not left a Will. All debts of the deceased must be paid off and that is why there is "Probate." This includes property taxes, personal taxes, charge cards, etc. If the deceased had no property or nothing to leave behind then everything becomes null and void. The parents would not be responsible for those debts unless they cosigned for a loan.

You may want to consult an attorney, but if the son died without owning real estate or major assets with a title (like a motor vehicle), and no children of his own, the lawyer will probably tell you not to worry about probating the estate. Interesting that a Canadian feels comfortable answering a legal question about Florida, and that this site allows it.

How do you obtain legal gardianship for teenage?

You need an attorney for court proceedings. You need proof that the parents are unfit or abusive. You'll probably need to prove that you can afford to support the teen - clothing, healthcare, dental and all of the things a parent supplies. On the other hand, you could talk to the parents and get them to agree to give you custody or guardianship. They probably won't do it since they get to claim the teen as a tax deduction.

You may be able to petition a court to be 'emancipated'. That is a legal term which means that the court recognizes you as an adult. If you are an adult, your parents' permission to do anything is no longer necessary. You would need to check with a local attorney who specializes in family law to find out if you qualify.
