Generally speaking only people who have not planned end up with a blocked account and without full IAEA authority. I typically see this done by pro pers and by lawyers who don't know what they are doing. There are other situations but that's a generalization by me.
Im barely thinking about this stuff now. I wonder why the bank stuff never was mentioned among other things? The probate case only included houses but she owned other things of value too that were not mentioned and I don't know why I wasn't thinking about it then until now that few years have past....

But you need to hurry to a local attorney because you may have already "blown" the statute of limitations....Read more »
At first I thought a money transmitter license was needed, but since no money is sent on behalf of the user to someone else, and instead it’s just them withdrawing/depositing in other areas, it doesn’t seem that is needed. ThankS!
Hi, every state is going to have a different law and most will require a slightly different type of license. The most common type of license is a "money transmitter" license. Most, but not all, of these licenses are regulated by each state's Department of Banking Department/Division. Others will be...Read more »

Section 13006 of the Ca. Probate code, am I considered the successor, if there is no estate (indebted) and no will? Or, I am wrong in just acting on behalf of my children and myself as authorized under Section 13051?
Please understand I am giving general information here and you should consult with an attorney for specifics. I would say it depends on if the accounts were "community property" or "separate property." CP is generally monies earned by either of you, during marriage, from your work, assuming no...Read more »

If there is no beneficiary named on the account, then if the total assets of the decedent are greater than $150,000, then you would have to go through probate. Or, if there was any real estate in the decedent's name.
The account was not closed, I have deposits made routinely but am not able to access my monies. With no explanation. No one at the bank has an answer for me. What do I do other than close the account and request my funds be returned?
