Decedent passed away in 2001. Recently discovered retirement account with less than $20,000. At the time of his death, his parents were only heirs.
Now, I am trying to help get the money but one of the parents died a few years after the decedent.
Will I have to file probate for deceased parent as well? Can it also be a voluntary if the only asset would be this retirement account? Is it even necessary to file for deceased parent if his estate would have gone to living parent anyways?
