I have really been enjoying your videos. One thing I don't know if you've covered…. what if you have beneficiaries listed on a bank account and you move that account into a living trust and the trust specifies different beneficiaries? thanks

Cristian Reynoso-Betancourt says:

Thank you very much for this video!. I live in Washington DC and I have an important question: My partner passed away last September 11. He made a Will and I am his main Beneficiary. The Executor of the Will lives in the Estate of Ohio. I have read that the entire process takes between three months and eleven months. My question is that does the Executor of the Will need to appear in the probate court in Washington DC? Thank you!
