Waiver of Notice Law and Legal Definition
A waiver of notice is generally a waiver of formal notice of a proceeding in which one's legal rights are affected. For example, in probating a will, a waiver of notice typically consents to the appointment of the executor or administrator and waives:
(a) notice of the hearing on the petition.
(b) notice of rights to require formal proof of the will and to contest the admission or denial of admission of the will to probate.
(c) notice of rights in independent administration.
Local court rules and state rules of civil procedure, which vary by area, govern waiver of notices.
