Removal of Executors

Personal Representatives Must Meet Louisiana Qualifications

In some circumstances, it may be a good idea to remove the executor of a will. Also known as the personal representative, an executor has important duties in the procedure of a probate case. In most states, a party in a probate case may take legal action to remove an executor.

In Louisiana, an executor must meet certain qualifications, including:

  • 18 years of age or older
  • Mentally competent
  • No felonies on criminal record
  • State resident

Do not let an incompetent executor ruin your probate!

Removing an executor may be a necessary step in ensuring the security of an estate and a mutually amicable solution for all parties in a succession case. Usually, a party can make a request to a probate court to remove the personal representative. If an executor does not meet Louisiana qualifications or may not perform his duties effectively, it is important to consider the option of removal.

A court may remove an executor for several different reasons, including:

  • Mental or physical incapability of performing duties.
  • Failure to properly administer the estate.
  • Moves from the state without appointing an agent.
  • Failure to comply with other court orders.
