What is the name of your state?california
I am the Personal Rep for my Mother's estate in South Carolina. I open an estate account there and use it to pay bills that came in after her death. I want to open a money market account here in California to deposit checks made out to her estate for the sale of her house and assets and earn some interest until probate ends in July. The local bank said I need a letter of testamentary from the local court. Is this something I can do or do I need to see a lawyer and also pay probate fees all over again?
