Can the excautor spend money when a will is still in probate for her own personnel use such as new roof for her home, lights, door knobs, furniture, washer and dryer etc. Not for the deceased property to fix and sell? I have to add my father 15 years ago wrote the will and did leave everything to her. Except 5000.00 to his other 6 children. His estate is worth 1.2 milliion. Can we contest the will if she is doing this?
