Meaning of Waiver of Notice on Probate of Will/Hearing on Inventory

Hi, Father passed away. Haven't seen him for 40 years. He had a will in which he left everything to son-in-law and in the will he claimed he had no children. I have been asked by lawyer representing son-in-law to sign a Waiver of Notice of Hearing on Probate of Will and a Waiver of Notice of Hearing on Inventory. State is Ohio. I live in Illinois. I was also told by his lawyer that the estate is insolvent. If so, I do not understand why an attorney was hired. It doesn't make sense to me.

What happens if I sign these? I tried to research this, but what I need to know is why I am being asked to sign these and what happens if I do.

Thank you!

Waiver of Notice

A waiver of notice is a document that waives the right to formal notification and it is used during the process of probating a will or when there needs to be an emergency meeting to discuss things. For example, in a probate process that deals with sensitive things like property, there needs to be adequate notice to the interested parties in the will. What the waiver of the notice does is waives the right to have the notice and an executor of estate will then make the decisions without having to notify each interested party, This is usually done to speed up the process and make it more efficient.

While a waiver of notice enables the probate case to proceed in timely and efficient manner, the risk that is that the interested party might waive the right and obligation t be at an important meeting and would not have the chance to make some important decisions required.
