Good afternoon. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
My condolences for your loss.
The joint checking account is not a probate asset. All funds in the account belong to you as the surviving joint owner. It is not subject to claims by creditors of your late wife.
Are you online with me?
