My father passed away a couple of months ago and left me as executor of the will. He didn't have any significant debts or assets. He had a house which had my mom's name on the deed, so she was able to acquire that without any trouble. He also had a safe deposit box that only had his name on it. The bank has told me in order to get into the box, I must have a letter of testament stating that I am the executor (even though I have the original will from the lawyer stating that I am). The lawyer has told me that the will is not worth probating because there are no assets. However, the court says I cannot get the executor papers unless I probate the will or open a small estate. Is there a way to get executor papers without paying $600 in attorney fees and $114 to open a small estate?
