Looking for some FREE advice....My 80 year old Uncle who lives in Nokomis, FL.( I am his niece from RI) has no children and recently lost his spouse (my blood aunt).He planned on having 2 relatives (my husband and cousin both from RI) be co-executors when he finalized will. He was recently told that Florida law only permits a Florida resident to be an executor.This news upset my uncle. I researched it and it seems like my husband would have been able to be an executor along with my cousin. I read that the spouse of a niece/nephew etc... could hold this position. Again this is my blood aunts husband who wants to appoint his nephew, my husband to this very important job. Am I misreading the law on this???
Thank you in advance!!!
