Letters Testamentary needed
My husband passed away Aug '06 and left no will. He had beneficiary designations for his life insurance & 401(K) with the respective agencies. His mother that had passed away in Feb '06, left him, his sister, and his brother her annuity. At no time did the annuity holder have any of her heirs sign a beneficiary form. With my husbands death they have suspended everyone's payments until I can get Letters Testamentary. The problem, we lived in OH at the time of his death and now I live in TX. How do I go about getting the Letters Testamentary from out of state? My husbands estate is very small. His two children from his first marriage and I got our portions of his life insurance like he wanted and I got his 401(K) like he wanted. I also put his only asset (an old pickup truck)in my name. Hope all this informations helps. Thank you for any responses.
