Legal Answers
65 Questions Answered
Q. Can the executor of a will take all cash out of deceased accounts and not report it when filing will for probate.
A: Depends. If the executor is also a joint owner or a beneficiary on those accounts, then YES. If the accounts are in the decedent's name and no beneficiary or joint owner exists, then NO.
Q. In Ohio, can an out of state person be an executor of an estate? Also, what are waiver of notice probate of will docs?
A: If your parents named you as executor in their wills, then you probably can act as executor. If they don't have wills, then you cannot. (R.C. 2109.21) It looks like your brother is moving forward with opening the estate. If this is something you would rather do, then you better get an attorney quickly.
Q. How to get access to safe deposit box of deceased mother?
A: You may have to open probate in New York to get an executor appointed who would have authority to go to the bank and remove the assets. If you just want to find out whether anything is in the safe deposit box, then Ohio has a mechanism to allow access for the purposes of creating an inventory of the safe deposit box. This scenario may qualify. Then, you could determine whether you want to open probate in New York.
