An August 24, 2018 First DCA opinion, Senopoulos v. Senopoulos, regards a dispute over who is entitled to become the personal representative of a Florida estate. Did you know that a personal representative is the same thing as an executor? In Florida, we just use the term “personal representative” instead of “executor”. Is a surviving spouse entitled to be the personal representative of the decedent’s estate? Which family member is entitled to serve as the personal representative of a West Palm Beach estate? What happens if the decedent did not have a will naming who he or she would like to represent his or her estate?
