Would you expand on your question as it was cut-off?
In NJ, the personal representative is required, within sixty days of probating the Will or taking out letters of administration, to notify the heirs at law, next of kin and beneficiaries in writing that the Will is probated, the date and place of the probate, the name and address of the personal representative and a statement that a copy of the Will shall be furnished upon request. A proof of mailing would be filed in the Surrogate's office evidencing the mailing.
You could notify the executor of the above procedures and advise that a complaint will be filed in Superior Court challenging the actions taken by the executor.
The executor should be the person who could provide the accounting. If he said it was admitted to probate, ask him why there is no record of this at the Surrogate's Court in either county.
Any statute of limitations should begin at the period when the estate was closed. If the executor committed fraud then the statute of limitations in NJ is 6 years.
