Yes. There are some limitation based on the total value of the estate, but if real property is involved, you need the finalization of probate. * Florida allows married couples to hold real estate as Tenancy By The Entirety. When the property is titled TBE it passes directly to the surving spouse and is not subject to probate proceure or creditor attachment if the deceased spouse is the sole debtor.

If both spouses are on the house deed and one dies can the children go after the house?

That depends on how the property was titled. If the spouses owned as joint tenants with the right of survivorship or tenants by the entirety (as most married couples do) then you have no claim whatsoever. In that case, the property automatically passed to the surviving spouse. If it happens the property was owned as tenants in common then you may acquire an interest in your deceased parent's half along with the surviving spouse providing the parent didn't leave the property to their surviving spouse by will. First check the tenancy on their deed.
