I am confused by what I read online. I think they are one and the same, but then I'm not sure when I read another article.
My sister and I are the "personal representatives" of my father's estate. Dad drew up a new will after mom passed in July and made that designation then. His new lawyer discovered his old will (2013) was a mess. In that will, my cousin's husband was named executor. Dad believes Jeff is still the executor but his name is not found at all in the new will. As I understand things, my sister and I now have that responsibility.
I have a call in to dad's lawyer but would like to talk to him with some degree of understanding when he calls me back.
Also, dad was told to destroy the old will and all related materials and to instruct me, my sister, and Jeff to do the same. I still have my copy. Within the packet are POA and Medical POA papers. When the old will was replaced, should these pages also have been replaced, or at least updated so that the same lawyer handles it all?
