Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Hi and welcome to JA. I am Ray and will be the expert helping you today.
You need your own lawyer here to motion the court to remove the executor.You have great facts.The estate lawyer represents everyone and really there is a conflict of interest.You can do this with your own lawyer here and the court should agree to it.
In your case if you are not happy with the way the executor is handling their duties because they are not following the instruction set forth by the will,you can, under New Jersey Probate Law, have an attorney file a complaint in Superior Court. This complaint is called the Complaint for Accounting. The complaint for accounting is filed to request the removal of the current executor and asks the court to assign a new person as an administrator of the will.
You need your own lawyer to make this motion and get it in front of the court.

Reference to the law for you too...
