Electronic Signature of Attorney form PA12

Good morning

The surviving spouse and sole beneficiary under intestacy is domiciled in Brazil.

Deceased domiciled here. Spouse is happy for deceased’s father to act in obtaining letters of admin so I sent her a form PA12 to sign. She and her witness have completed this electronically. Guidance from direct.gov website would suggest this is OK what do you think?

Many thanks in advance

Hi Deborah, I am wondering whether digital signature / witness was accepted?

Sadly not. The digital wasn’t accepted.

The widow then signed wet and sent it over on an email. I printed that off and sent it to the Probate Registry. They accepted that.
