    Likely the bank wanted to ensure that they had the correct payee. It is equally likely that a knowledgeable banker would have been able to work with you to achieve your goals once you established that you were the sole trustee. As the sole trustee and beneficiary, you can make distributions from your checking account into a money market account. You should check with your estate planning attorney to make sure the money market account is properly titled.

    I do not entirely understand your question but caution you against the unauthorized practice of law. You should look into what Ohio considers representing another and make sure it doesn't apply.

    Mr. Frederick's answer is a great one. If the executor is represented by an attorney you could contact that attorney's office to get some answers. In the meantime, you should check with the Court to see if the Notice has been filed. It could be that the notice was "lost in the mail" and the Court file indicates you were served.

    You may not need to formally revoke the guardianship if your grandparents and father agree that you can physically reside with your father. Your are old enough you should have some preference to choose to live with your father, but that is state law specific. You would need to research Indiana law or speak with a local attorney.
