if one of the 6 1st cousins filed a complaint to remove our deceased cousins will for good reason, how will a probate judge replace/appoint an executor? the named 1 of 6 cousings-heirs is an attorney & appears to wish to be the personal rep./executor. is there not a nomination process vs. judge appionting the moving party?
ok i belive the judge will appoint , but how does the judge or who does the judge appoint executor? i was asking is/ there not a process for nomination? We fear the attorney cousin is trying to insert herself as excutor without any nomination nor with by any agreement from asny one or 50% + the 5 cousins? , see my question better now?
ok good info. I' ll have 3 of the 5 vote for me. Only 5 will vote. and noone except the attorney herself will vote for herself. thus by majority vote will i be nonated by the judge? ie 3 if 3 of of 3 vote for me, 1 votes for herself the other two will not vote. get it?
