There are a number of state-specific forms you may need when going through the probate process.

General Forms

In Puerto Rico, the regional Tribunal de Primera Instancia handles wills and estate matters.

You can check with your local court for the forms they might prefer, and below you will find some of the more common PR forms:

If the court will not provide required forms, it is recommended that you work with an attorney.

Note that in Puerto Rico, an executor is by default required to complete the estate settlement within 1 year, unless there is litigation. The executor can extend this deadline by 1 year, and the heirs can extend it further by unanimous consent. See Puerto Rico Civil Code §§ 1752 - 1754.

Small Estates

Small estates sometimes need only 1 specialized form or affidavit: see Small PR Estates.
