Brief Statement about Rule

The amendment to Rule 64(a) of the Vermont Rules of Probate Procedure provides consistency with the amendment of V.R.P.P. 4(e) promulgated effective July 10, 2012, to conform to the amendment of that rule by Act 144 of 2011 (Adj. Sess.), § 1.  The statute and the rule amendment eliminate the requirement of publication in two successive weeks in favor of a single publication.  Notice to creditors under Rule 64(a) is to be published as provided in amended V.R.P.P. 4(e) unless notice has previously been given.
The amendment to V.R.P.P. 68 conforms the rule to Act No. 78 of 2011 (Adj. Sess.), § 2, eff. April 2, 2012, which renamed the Department of Banking, Insurance, Securities and Health Care Administration as the Department of Financial Regulation.
The amendments to V.R.P.P. 72 provide a uniform procedure for enforcement of probate division orders by contempt proceedings.
