Board approves probate changes

The Board of Governors recently recommended approval of 11 amendments and 14 revisions to comments of the Florida probate rules.

Probate Rules Committee Chair James George said the out-of-cycle changes were made to conform probate rules to Rule of Judicial Administration 2.425, which delineates confidential information that must be protected in court filings and how that information will be highlighted in those filings.

The board voted 38-0 to add its endorsement to the changes, which now go to the Supreme Court.
