Does anybody know what this means? Thank you.

Section 4 : Executors
...I direct my executor to take all actions legally permissable to have the probate of my will done as simply and as free of court supervision as possible under the laws of the state having jurisdiction over this will, including filing a petition in the appropriate court for the independent administration of my estate

I asked my wife who is a retired Trusts & Estate attorney what it might mean. She said that generally it is meant to instruct the court probating the will to not get overly involved in the estate administration. The testator (person whose will is being probated) is saying to the court that they have complete confidence in the named executor, and the court should not try to second-guess the executor's actions or decisions.

The Usual Disclaimer: I am not an attorney. This should not be construed in any manner to be a legal opinion or advice. If you are a party to an estate where the will contains such a paragraph, you need to consult with a T&E attorney to get a formal legal opinion.

Good luck!
