Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Are you referring to a caveat that is filed with the court by someone who is concerned that they won't be notified when an estate is opened?
Or are you a creditor of the estate?
Ok, this is the statute they are talking about:
Caveat by Creditor/Interested Party - Florida Statute 731.110
If any creditor or interested party of an estate is apprehensive that an estate may be administered or that a will may be admitted to probate without their knowledge, they may file a caveat with the court. This document assures that if a Probate administration has been filed or is ever filed for a decedent, the Clerk shall notify the Caveator.
I don't see the Caveat by Interested Party form anywhere, but was able to find the one for a Creditor. I would just use this as a template and change the wording to state Interested Party instead of Creditor and change the other language regarding whether you are a resident or not..
Link to form: Caveat
P-1.0310 Caveat by Interested Person
This is the form number...
I found a website where you can print the document for free..
