2 Answers from Attorneys
According to Florida Statutes:
733.304 Nonresidents.—A person who is not domiciled in the state cannot qualify as personal representative unless the person is:
(1) A legally adopted child or adoptive parent of the decedent;
(2) Related by lineal consanguinity to the decedent;
(3) A spouse or a brother, sister, uncle, aunt, nephew, or niece of the decedent, or someone related by lineal consanguinity to any such person; or
(4) The spouse of a person otherwise qualified under this section.
If the nonresident is eligible (meets one of the 4 criteria above), a Florida attorney will be required to handle the probate.
Yes-if they are related as explained in the previous answer.
