Who will serve as the personal representative, if there is no will, well, it will be more than likely one of the children of the decedent. In order to be appointed as the personal representative, you need to have the majority and entrust degree or consent to your appointment. So if there are three children, well, we need two out of three to agree one person. If there can be no agreement, then anyone can petition say why they’re qualified as a child, and then get formal notice to the other children as far as, being for them to object. And so if they don’t object, well, then they would be appointed. The court would then decide if there’s an objection, may require a bond or a higher bond, if it is a contested matter. But usually I find that we can find a, the majority of the beneficiaries are agreeing on one person to serve. If you have a question about handling the probate and when there’s no will involved, well give me a call at (727) 847-2288.
