Bank Accounts and Personal Estates
Bank Accounts and CD's are in both parties names,
Example: "Person-A or Person-B"
when Person-A dies, Person-B can obtain the finances by simply removing Person-A's name from the accounts.
I know this to be true.
My question is:
Are the above accounts Legally considered part of
Person-A's estate. If there are legal actions against the estate of Person-A, can the above accounts be
attached to the estate, or are they seperate.
I am hoping that they are seperate, and any legal
actions against the estate cannot touch the accounts.
PS: Wills do not list the accounts.
