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.
is it legal to open or rather change bank accts to prevent step son from freezing our accts when his dad passes and I won't be able to pay bills,
Sure, as long as all the owners on the account agree to close down the account and move it to a new bank, then they can do whatever they want with their money.
You are very welcome. And no worries, you are not doing anything improper or illegal by changing banks. Step Son has no legal right to information about your banking relationships unless you choose to share that with him.
