Q: Person named in will as executor of will refuses to probate will, what can the beneficiaries do to get will probated
A: You can petition to be appointed as executor of the estate yourself. A probate attorney can help you with this.
Brandon M Haubert agrees with this answer
A: You can either file to appoint that person and force them to serve, and if they refuse then you can serve. Or you can file to appoint yourself or someone else, and if that person objects then you can use them refusing as evidence as to why they should not be appointed. You need to talk to an Arkansas probate lawyer about your options.
