The will normally will be probated in the state where the decedent resided. In Florida, if the decedent owned real property in Florida, there will be an auxiliary probate in the county where the property lies (if the property is not in the same county where the decedent is a resident). I am not certain how other states handles such matters. Each state is different.

A will must be probated in the county in which the individual was residing full time. In certain limited circumstances a person's will can be probated in another jurisdiction IF that person was in process of moving and had not yet established residency in the new jurisdiction but you are able to show the person's clear intent to establish their new place of residence there.
