Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
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 type out an answer or reply.
You may also be offered a phone call, but those don’t come from me and are offered by the website and you are under no obligation to accept.
I have read your comments, but I am not sure what your legal question is?
Basically a divorce revokes a will with regard to the spouse as they are considered to have predeceased the testator. So you are cut out of the will all together.
So no you can't be executor and legally you wouldn't have any claim to her estate. The public Administrator will have to trace her family tree back up to grandparents, great grandparents, etc, and then out and down to track down her heirs and descendants, regardless of how remote they are, so that they inherit her estate.
I just wanted to touch base with you and check in.
Did you have any further questions I can help with?
