Matters of probate are controlled by the laws of the state in which the decedent lived. Therefore, you should contact the office of the clerk of the probate court to obtain information on the procedures for filing for executor or executrix of the deceased's estate. ==Clarification== If the decedent died intestate the surviving spouse must Petition the probate to be appointed the Administrator of the estate. If there is no will then there is no executor.
