Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Does this position super cede my position as The Executrix of his will, in the state of NC, or how does this work.
A guardian of the estate is in charge while a ward is living. But their authority ends upon the death of the ward. So if you are executrix, once you file a probate case and are appointed by a judge formally to that position, then you have the legal authority to take possession of all the assets of the estate, including anything the guardian is holding, and then proceed to pay debts and bills, file taxes, and settle the estate.
