Florida Probate Rules Update

The Florida Bar

Probate attorneys live by the rules – The Florida Probate Rules. These rules are updated by the Florida Probate Rules Committee, which consists of volunteers appointed by the President-Elect of The Florida Bar as vacancies open up.

Several changes became effective on January 1, 2020, including rules that affect the content of the Petition for Administration, the Oath of Personal Representative, and the Notice of Administration.

To keep up with the changes, The Florida Bar offers access to the most recent version of the rules. Here’s a link to the January 1, 2020 update:
