Lawyer up. They can't get a warrant to force a statement. They can get a Warrant for Arrest, if there is probable cause and it's issued by a proper judicial official. They may also get a Search Warrant, again with proper grounds (normally via oath or affidavit) to search for something.... Read more »

Legally separated is a misnomer. In NC, one is simply either separated or they are not. Mere separation has no impact on how the estate will be disbursed. So it depends on what his separation agreement and will say. If no formal separation agreement or will - likely his spouse will inherit.
