How To Object To The Final Accounting of a Personal Representative in Florida
The final accounting can be complex. As many Florida residents might know, the probate of an estate can be a very lengthy process that can be full of mistakes. Mistakes are often made when the estate’s personal representative makes the final accounting of the estate. What many people do not realize is that they have the right to object to the final accounting.
The Florida probate rules state that an interested person has 30 days to object to a Final Accounting and Petition for Discharge after the documents have been served. However, a simple broad objection will not work. Written objections must state what parts of the accounting the person is objecting to, and what specific grounds the objections are based upon.
