What is the name of your state? Florida
My ex-husband passed away slightly over 2 years ago with no will. He had more debt than assets and no legal papers were filed for probate. He was simply laid to rest and his utility accounts were closed with no action taken for any of his personal matters. He was the only individual listed for his 2 bank accounts, one personal and one business, and they hold less than $4000. The bank previously declined requests to close the accounts and have been charging $25 a month in bank fees. We were divorced for 7 years prior to his death and has only one child, our child, who is now in college. The money in his bank accounts should be given to our child for college and living expenses. He was the owner of his business that was incorporated. In September 2003, the State of Florida sent a Certificate of Admnistrative Dissolution or Revocation because his corporation failed to file its 2003 corporation annual report/uniform business report. Can the bank accounts now be closed and the money given to his only child? If so, is there a form letter that can be sent to the bank that will contain the appropriate language and allow the request to go through so that his bank balances will be transferred to his child's account without further question or legal hassle? Are there any other steps that need to be taken to accomplish this?
