Q. My cousin has $ 461.00 in Bank of America . She died in Indonesia..I am the executor and want to send this to Indonesia.
A: You said you are an executor so there has to be a will. Where this $461 goes will depend on what the will says. Not "you want to send this to Indonesia". The fact that she died im Indonesia also complicates the situation. there are other factors to consider if probate should be done in the U.S. or in Indonesia. Even if we assume that probate should be done in the U.s., you are correct that the cost of probate (even the simplified route such as small estate affidavit) still will cost more than $461 when adding legal fee together with filing fee. I would suggest that you check with BoA and see if by any chance there is a payable on death designation in her account. If you are lucky, she may have set up a P.O.D. Then you don't need probate to get access to the money.
Q. MY father passed away 7 yrs ago I did probate the will, my mother still lives but living in a nursing home. The house
A: therr are not enough details of your case for a full analysis. For example, what does the power of attorney cover. Is your mother mentally competent now. Who are the owners of the house. Who are the heirs of your mother. What other assets does your mother have. Is she getting any medicaid benefits. Depending on what the answers are to those questions, you may or may not have right to the house. There are also various ways to try and have the house pass down to you. You will need to discuss your case with an attorney.
Q. Mom dies with no will. What happens if no one probates?
A: I Supposed what you were asking is what will happen to her assets if her estate is not probated. If that is the case, it means that none of her assets can change hand. If she owns a house, the house will stay in the name of her estate. Same thing for money in her bank accounts, investment accounts etc. There is, however, an exception. If the assets are "non probate" assets, eg joint account with right of survivorship, or a IRA account with designated beneficary, then those assets can pass to the beneficiaries without the need for probate. As you can see, the end results can be quite different depending on the facts. To get your situation fully analyzed, you should consult an attorney.
