A Miami estate bond application can be denied for many reasons. When a bond is denied, the court will determine who is next in line to become the personal representative of the estate. If the next person cannot obtain a bond or is disqualified in some other way, the court looks to the next person, etc. If there are no relatives and nominated executors left, the county will take over and become the personal representative of the estate.

If there is an alternate personal representative named in the will, they will be next candidate. If the decedent did not have a will, the next of kin after the person that was denied bond can apply to be the personal representative. Sometimes, the attorney for the personal representative who was denied bond can petition the court to appoint the attorney to be the personal representative of the estate.
