Subchapter 001 : General Provisions(Cite as: 14 V.S.A. § 910)
§ 910. When executor is a minor
When a person named as executor in a will is under age at the time of proving the will, issuance of letters of administration may be granted to another executor named in the will, who accepts appointment and gives the required bond, or to another suitable person if he or she fails to accept appointment or to post bond. A minor who attains the age of legal majority during the estate administration shall not displace the incumbent executor or administrator, but if a vacancy occurs during administration, the former minor may apply to the court for appointment as successor executor or administrator. (Amended 2017, No. 195 (Adj. Sess.), § 5.)
