Hello: This isCustomer Welcome to JustAnswer! I am reviewing your post, and I will post my response very shortly. Thank you for your patience.
I am sorry, but I do not understand your post.
Why would your stepson who is a minor need a guardian when his mother is there and the Court has not ruled his mother to be unfit?
A parent is the natural guardian of her child. So, I am not sure why you are stating that he is not able to make the withdrawal because there is no guardian.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Thank you for the information.
If this is an inherited fund, there should already be an Executor of the Estate. Also, in the Will, there is usually a provision made for any inheritance to a minor. The Testator usually appoints someone, could be a parent as the custodian for the minor's funds until the minor reaches the age of majority. So, the custodian would be able to authorize the withdrawal of the funds.
If the estate is still open and the funds have not been disbursed to a custodian for the minor, then the Executor of the Estate needs to authorize the withdrawal of the funds. If the funds have been released to the custodian, usually a parent, then the custodian needs to authorize the withdrawal of the funds from the custodian account set up for the funds.
Let me know if you need additional information.
