Caption: Relating to decedents' estates.
Author: Hartnett
Bill History
Bill Text

Relevance: This bill makes multiple changes to the decedents' estates portion of the probate code, including repealing Section 29 of the Probate Code, which exempted executors and administrators from the requirement to file an appeal bond, clarifying that there is no statute of limitations for determining heirship, permitting unsecured creditors to initiate probate proceedings (secured creditors already were permitted to do so), prohibiting severance of dueling will applications (both applications must be heard together), tinkering with the notice requirements for removal of independent executors and addressing the disposition of property distributable from an estate to an unknown or missing person.
