How do I get answers about an inheritance in Gloucester County?

Posted on Wed Jul 1, 2015, on Estate Litigation

From our “Ask a Question” Mailbag: Unresponsive Executor in Gloucester County

Most Recently Updated July 14, 2018.

“My husband’s aunt willed him a share of the proceeds of her jewelry, but the executor told us that the money was mine and sent me a check. We looked up the will ourselves at the Gloucester County Surrogate, and it looks like my husband should get more money. The executor will not answer our questions, so what can we do?”

Unresponsive Executor in Gloucester County

As an heir listed in the will, your husband has the legal right to force the executor to account for the estate. New Jersey has a system where the executor, or personal representative, is given a great deal of freedom without official oversight. This system relies on the heirs bringing mismanagement to the Surrogate’s attention. In your husband’s case, he could have us file a Petition for Accounting and the judge would force the executor to answer your questions and explain when the remaining assets will arrive.

Dealing with the unresponsive executor is only one of many Estate Litigation issues our firm addresses. Consequently, if you want to learn more, please read my more detailed article, Trust and Estate Litigation All You Need to Know.
