Q: What does a renunciation form mean
A: There can be various types of "renunciation forms." Such a form is used to demonstrate that a person is giving up rights to do something. For example, if an estate had to be opened and there were multiple people who could qualify to become administrators or executors of an estate, but it was decided that less than all people would actually serve, a renunciation form would be required from the people who did not wish to serve, indicating that they are giving up their right to serve, before the one or ones who are going to serve can actually be appointed.
