Louisiana Law Succession Joint bank account
Asked Apr 6, 2011, 06:32 PM
My mother died leaving everything to my father. However, my oldest sister was on the checking account 2 years prior to my mothers passing. My father died 8 months after my mother. My sister's name remained on the checking account and she continued to use funds with no accountability. She was not the executor of the estate.
Was this proper according to Louisiana Law? Or should the checking account have been frozen on the death of my father?
She changed the password to the account so that no one else could view any activity on the account. Three of the Six children have had no communication from the others. They have the power and the money because we have been kept in the dark and refuse to answer any questions. Please can you shed any light on this. Five days after my father was dead they spent $600 and claimed it was for medication. That is ridiculous!!
