A: It appears that a probate case has been (or is about to be) filed to allow your father's estate to be handled through probate, and your aunt is requesting that the Court appoint her as Special Administrator (giving her certain powers under the law to act on behalf of the estate). It sounds like this request came as a surprise to you, so I recommend you speak to an attorney to discuss your options. You don't have to sign the waiver. Speak to an attorney if you have any reservation about signing it.
