John Pankauski discusses appealing a creditors claim.

Can I appeal a probate court ruling on a creditors claim or a statement of claim.
Hello, my name is John Pankauski, I’m a probate litigation attorney with Pankauski Hauser in West Palm Beach Florida. You know, creditors will file statements of claims or creditors claims in Florida Probates all the time making a claim that the dead person owed them money or the creditor had some rights they need to exercise such as rights under a contract. What if the Probate Court judge issues a ruling about that creditors claim that statement of claim or maybe a motion or a petition filing by that creditor or that would-be creditor, and it’s wrong. Can you appeal an order a Probate Court order regarding a creditors claim or a statement of claim or creditors motion or petition or the independent action of a creditor. Well, the answer to that lies in rule 9.170 in the rules of Appellate Procedure in Florida. That’s the Appellate rule that you need to know if you are involved in a Probate proceeding and definitely need to know if you are involved or considering a Florida Probate Appeal.
