When creating an estate plan, the estate owner will name a guardian or representative who they entrust with what is known as “fiduciary duty.” This responsibility requires that the representative executes the probate process and distribution of the estate fairly and honestly while protecting the value of the assets involved. If you are a beneficiary or a creditor of that estate and feel as though the fiduciary has not acted fairly in handling the probate process, you may be able to petition the court to have that individual removed for a “breach of fiduciary duty.”
