SB 6 - This act allows a creditor, surviving spouse or person acting for an unmarried child to commence an action for nonprobate transfer if the personal representative fails to commence an action within thirty days of a written request. If the personal representative fails to commence the action, he or she is under a duty to disclose information related to the identity of any beneficiary of a nonprobate transfer made by the decedent. If the representative does not disclose the information, the statute of limitations is tolled until the information is provided. If the personal representative is the beneficiary of the nonprobate transfer, the court may appoint an administrator ad litem to represent the estate in any proceeding.
