What Are Some Good Renunciation Letter Samples?

A sample renunciation form for U.S. citizenship is available from the U.S. Consulate in Amsterdam, which provides a copy of Form DS-4080: Oath/Affirmation of Renunciation of Nationality, on its website at Amsterdam.Usconsulate.gov. Sample forms for renouncing an appointment in probate matters are available at the New York State Bar Association website, at Nysba.org, which provides Form P-10: Renunciation of Nominated Executor and/or Trustee, and Form P-11: Renunciation of Letters of Administration.

Renunciation is a legal term for forfeiting or rejecting the right to something, such as the right to serve as administrator of an estate or a right to collect a debt, according to USLegal. In criminal law, renunciation means stopping short of actual participation in a crime or an attempt to convince others to commit one.

In matters involving an estate in which there is no will, the renunciation is performed when one person who is entitled to letters of administration gives up this right in favor of another, such as a sibling, explains Evans Law Office. A sample of a Pennsylvania letter of renunciation, Form RW-06: Renunciation, is available at Evans-legal.com. In North Carolina, the Clerk of the Superior Court of Forsyth County provides a sample of AOC-E-200: Renunciation Of Right To Qualify For Letters Testamentary Or Letters Of Administration, on its website, at Ncfcc.us.
