questions & answers

Question: My ex husband recently passed away and his only children were named sole beneficiaries in the divorce decree(irrevocable).The decree states that he was to maintain a policy through his employer but his widow insists he only had one policy that she purchased and maintained through AFLACK. How can my children find out if they are entitled to any monies from this or any other policy that could be hidden. His widow insists that she has nothing and that he had no will

Answer: A private fiduciary is a person or firm that is hired as a neutral 3rd party executor. If a person wants a private fiduciary to be appointed, then a petition needs to be filed with the court to request that a private fiduciary or an individual be appointed. Any persons interested in the estate must be given notice and the matter needs to be set for a hearing. Any people who do not want the appointment may object to the appointment.
