With all due respect, in NJ, as noted by Mr. Backes, a Notice of Probate must, pursuant to the Rulees of Court, be sent to all interested parties. That Notice need only state that the will was probated, the date of probate, and who qualified as the personal representative of the estate. In addition, while more often than not some portion, or all of the Will may be provided, the Notice need only state that beneficiary/interested party may request a copy. The actual Will need not be included. In addition, it is to be noted that while the Notice is required, unlike other states, the failure to give the Notice does not invalidate the probate of the Will or the appointment by the Surrogate of the personal representative, although it can be one an indication that that individual is not acting properly and be one of many factors that can cause the removal of the personal representative..
