A: Where a Personal Representative is doing a poor job, the court can remove her and appoint a new Personal Representative. I recommend discussing the facts of this matter with a probate attorney. Your attorney will let you know if the circumstances are sufficiently egregious to make it likely that the court would remove your sister as Personal Representative. If so, your attorney can file a petition with the court seeking your sister's removal and the appointment of a suitable new Personal Representative. In such cases, a professional fiduciary can often be of help.
