Who can and who can not be appointed personal representative?
In Florida, that is a unique question and it’s an easy answer. If you are a resident of Florida and you are making a will, and you want a personal representative who is a blood relative, it does not matter whether that blood relative is in Florida or in Washington state, or in New York or any other state. They can be appointed. However, if you are going to appoint a personal representative, in Florida, who is not a blood relative, that person must be a resident of the state of Florida, as the rules require that.
