If you are not a named person on the bank account, then you cannot access the safety deposit box. You will need to get the probate court to grant you authority to open the box to see if a will is present.

If your mother passed away in New Jersey, you will need to proceed under New Jersey law. If Georgia, then Georgia law. Ultimately, if the bank is located only in New Jersey, you will need to follow New Jersey law to get the money from the bank.

In small companies shareholders do lots of stuff, including bookkeeping and payroll.

No. Wills get probated. Powers of Attorney don't get probated. POAs (even durable ones) terminate upon the death of the principal (the person who gave the power). Hope this helps.
