What happens if the personal representative fails to perform his or her duty?

Video Transcription:

If a personal representative fails to perform his or her duty in an estate, another person who wishes to be appointed in that position, or who has standing to object to the the person representative serving, could file a petition with the court, asking that the court remove that person. A hearing would be set before the court, and then the court would determine whether or not that person, is in fact, complying with their obligations and performing their duties, or if that person should be removed and a substitute personal representative should be appointed.
