Can I Name More Than One Person To Be The Personal Representative For My Estate?



Video Summary

Can I name more than one personal representative to be the personal representative of my estate? The answer is yes, you can. In your will you can name more than ... you can name co-personal representatives or several personal representatives. I usually try and dissuade my clients from doing that in that it's very cumbersome and that you rarely should have two people sign each check. And so, but you are authorized to do that as long as both of them are qualified. In order to be a personal representative in Florida, you have to be either a resident of the state of Florida or be related to the decedent. If you're either one of those, you're qualified and you can designate more than one person to be the co-personal representative.
