An executor must submit the Will to the probate court. Once appointed as executor by the court the executor must follow the provisions in the will. The debts of the estate must be paid before any property can be distributed. If the testator devised the real estate to the executor legal title will pass to her. If the property was not devised to the executor then the title to the property will pass according to the provisions in the Will and the provisions of state law. Remember that no executor has any authority until they have been appointed by the court.

A valid will is one that has been properly executed by the testator, the owner of the property distributed by the will. The executor is appointed by the court to carry out the provisions set forth in the will.

No. An executor has no power to change the provisions in the will. Any such action by an executor should be reported to the court that appointed the executor.

The executor must follow the provisions in the will. If the stock is not mentioned in the will then it must be distributed to the heirs at law according to the laws of intestacy. An executor who is abusing her office should be reported to the court, removed and replaced.

No, once the will has been executed and the assets distributed the task of the executor is finished

Apply to the probate court. They will appoint an executor and the estate will be distributed according to law.

No. An executor doesn't have that kind of discretion. The executor must distribute the estate according to the provisions in the will. Any property that is not distributed under the will shall pass as intestate property according to state law. The executor will be required to report back to the court on the disposition of the property by the final account. If they do any self-dealing they should be reported to the court and removed immediately.

An executor must follow the provisions in the will and for any property not distributed by the will must distribute it as intestate property according to the laws of intestacy. An executor does not have discretionary power of distribution unless that power was specifically granted in the will. An executor is personally liable for any acts that go against the will or violate the law.

No. The executor must follow the provisions of the will and distribute the decedent's property according to the instructions of the testator. In some cases the will gives the executor some discretion in distributing the property. You should review the provisions of the will and speak with the attorney who is handling the estate if you think the executor is abusing their position.

The court must be notified of the death and a successor executor will be appointed.

The court will appoint the executor. The estate will be distributed per the intestacy laws.

I am not an attorney. You could mean that family don't like the person chosen to be the executor, or that family object to something the executor is doing. Not liking the person is petty, and not worth getting upset about. The executor was chosen by the deceased, and if the will is in order and if the executor is doing everything properly, then you just suck it up until the assets are distributed. If the executor is not following the exact specifications in the will, then there is a problem. Family should be able to obtain a copy of the will, and if the executor is misbehaving then probate court has to come into the picture. Even when there is a will, the process is handled by probate court, although the process is much more streamlined when there isa will. But the provisions of the will have to be determined to be legal by probate court, and no executor can simply do what he pleases without regard to the provisions of the will. It sounds like probate court may be able to help you.

Generally, the powers that ARE discretionary are set forth in the will. The executor cannot make changes to the provisions in the will unless the will explicitly gives that power. The duty of the executor is to carry out the provisions in the will. You should discuss this topic with an attorney.

An executor is the person who carries out the provisions in a person's will. An estate is the property owned by a person at the time of their death. If a person who died left a will the person appointed by the court to carry out the provisions of the will is the executor of the estate.When a person dies without a will (intestate) the court will appoint an administrator of the estate.

No. An executor settles an estate according to the provisions in the will. A trustee manages a trust according to the provisions in a trust.A trust may be set forth in a will. In that case the will must be probated with the executor in charge of the probate of the will. Once the probate process is completed the court will allow the trusteeship and officially appoint the trustee. Then that trustee will manage the trust according to the provisions set forth in the will.

No one, unless some malpractice is discovered on the part of the executor after the estate is closed and sues the executor. Once the estate is distributed and a final account is filed and approved the executor is discharged and the estate is closed. After that, the executor has no authority.

Only the court can "change" the executor. However, after the will has been probated there is no need of an executor. If additional property has been found that wasn't distributed then the probate must be reopened and the court can appoint a new executor.

The executor is responsible for paying any debts, including taxes, owed by the decedent before any assets can be distributed. If the debts are not paid and assets are distributed the executor can be held personally responsible.

No. The executor must follow the instructions outlined in the will. If it says to distribute it equally, then it will be distributed equally.

The executor is the person who has the power and obligation to carry out the provisions in the will and perform all the duties necessary to settle the estate. The widow has no rights in that aspect of the estate. If the divorce decree was not yet entered at the time of death the widow will inherit according to the provisions in the will. In most states she can claim a statutory share if she is not satisfied with provisions made for her in the will.
