My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: Florida
I was requested by my mother's financial advisor to order death certificates, on behalf of the personal representative, who also happens to be the attorney listed on the case. I submitted copies of the invoices to the personal representative requesting reimbursement. There has been more than one month since doing so and the Notice of Administration was recorded on 2/16/12, with the Notice to Creditors published on 2/23/12. Do I have to file a Statement of Claim with the probate court, or is the submission to the lawyer sufficient?
So far, the beneficiaries of my mother's trust, which is being handled through probate, are not satisfied with the personal representative/attorney handling my mother's affairs. We have not been provided with a formal notice of trust and there appear to be other steps that are not being handled in a prompt or efficient manner. Communication has been extremely limited, and on a very casual and almost evasive basic.
