My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: Florida
An aunt of mine died 20 years ago. The probate of her estate was completed and closed shortly thereafter. Recently, another probate court directed distribution to her estate her inheritance from her Mother's estate. I am an heir of this aunt under her will that was part of her probate 20 years ago.
My questions are: does a new probate of my aunt's estate have to be initiated to handle the recent unexpected distribution to her estate, or will the old probate be reopened? How will further distributions from her estate of this recent inheritance receipt be made and accounted for? Will the earlier closed probate final accounting be revised and updated to show the new distribution to heirs, or must a new accounting be initiated?
