Reporter's Notes to Form 13: See Ark. Code Ann. § 28-40-111. This form shall be used if a will was admitted to probate and a personal representative was appointed. The language in parentheses in the first paragraph should be substituted for the language immediately preceding it if the personal representative was not nominated in the decedent's will. The form to be used when a will is probated but no personal representative appointed may be found in Ark. Code Ann. § 25-40-111(c)(3). Because such proceedings are infrequent, no official form was adopted.
Addition to Reporter's Notes, 2013 Amendment: Official probate form 13 was revised to conform with substantive law changes.
