Reasons for Dismissal of a Personal Representative

There are a variety of reasons that an individual who is in charge of a will and the responsibilities of handling a will is dismissed. California law specifically lays out in probate code § 8502 the possible reasons for the dismissal of an individual who is acting as personal representative.

These include:

  • The individual executes some type of scam (such as cheating or stealing)
  • The individual does not have the ability to correctly carry out their tasks and jobs which they are given from the legal office
  • The individual disregarded or didn't accomplish the task that their position requires

If you have any questions or concerns regarding whether a specific circumstance is grounds for removal, meet with our firm at once.
