The Committee is currently working on the following projects:
Later-Dated/Discovered Wills Subcommittee
The subcommittee is studying whether the Florida Probate Code needs to clarify the deadline for a proponent of a later-discovered will to bring that action due to ambiguities and potential conflicts contained in Florida Statutes Sections 733.212, 733.2123, and 733.208.
Trust Contests and Distribution Issues Subcommittee
The subcommittee is studying the applicable statutes of limitations for revocable trusts, comparing the limitations period for other jurisdictions, and studying whether the limitations period should be amended or clarified in the Florida Trust Code, and whether a statute of repose should be implemented.
Trust Officer Individual Liability Subcommittee
The subcommittee is studying whether the six-month limitations period contained in 736.1008 should include trust officers, directors, and employees in addition to trustees.
