Holland, MI asked in Probate for Ohio

Q: My cost to state of Ohio to become bonded as Executor of mother's will. I live and reside in Michigan.

Oddly, most of the estate has been finalized. Several loose ends to tie up. Since I live in MI and finishing this, I understand there is a fee to be bonded. That's first of many questions. Thanks

A: Check with a bonding company for the premium. It also would be prudent to retain a local probate attorney to assist you with the probate process in the county in which the probate is filed. Use the Find a Lawyer tab.

A: First, check your mother’s will. Most wills state that no bond is required.
