someone is attempting to place a creditors claim against the estate of the deceased. the deceased had a bank account naming for individuals as beneficiaries.since a POD account is not a probate asset I feel the creditors claim is not valid because I do not think a POD account is part of a state. The person left no will or trust
Thank you David,
Yes, there is a hearing this July 13. The deceased in the Divorce Decree, was supposed to have obtained a 1 million life insurance, he did not. Now the ex-wife filed a creditors claim against the estate and the Bank froze the bank account eventhough a Death Certificate of all the other required documents were presented to them by the beneficiaries. I am trying to find sited cased pertaining to this but I cannot.
I don't know if it matters but the deceased would have never being able to obtain that type of insurance and the x- was aware of this, health reasons
