Estate Lawyers. I have been appointed executrix Aunt's

Hello Estate Lawyers. I have been appointed executrix for my Aunt's Estate. It has been quite a headache. I am interested in finding a way to set up CDs for her grandchildren who are all minors. According to the Will which was created by a lawyer, each of her grandchildren is to receive $3,000 at 25 years of age. According to the Will, I am the appointed trustee & responsible for investing the money on their behalf. I just spoke to the bank and they are unable to setup CDs for the minors as a trust account. So is it possible to setup a trust account at this point for the kids?

My ex husband and I had divided property we owned when we

My ex husband and I had divided property we owned when we got divorced. He died last year and I just got a legal document, Special Warranty Deed, in the mail from his current wife, widow, who is trying to settle his estate that did not have a will. Apparently my name was never removed from a rental income single family home and it's being stated as a clerical error in the state of Texas. We had two children together, ages are now 21 & 23, who are concerned about their stepmom not being far in dividing the estate. Is there any chance that this "clerical error" could be something I could claim as mine and then my kids would have the value of a home to divide? Do I have any rights to this home that still has my name on it?
