Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Welcome to Just Answer! My name is***** give me a few minutes to review your inquiry. Thank you for your patience.
Even with an insolvent estate, a PETITION FOR SETTLEMENT OF INSOLVENT ESTATE UNDER 20 Pa. C.S.A. §3392 may have been filed on the executor's behalf by the probate lawyer. If that proceeding is now closed, it may need to be reopened and the court may need to re-issue a current set of Letters Testamentary for the executor. Then the executor will have legal authority to sign the check.
