When my mom passed last year, I failed to contact the county in which she resided to have her will go through probate. I am now facing the imminent passing of my father at some point and am now worried I did something wrong in not doing anything with my moms will. I have read where wills need to be put through probate in the county the person resided in at time of death. Therefore my moms will need to go to NC, and my dads would need to be done in VA. Which means one wont know what the other is doing (I will let them know, but i have a feeling it is going to cause a lot of confusion). They will have some medical debts that need to be taken care of that has not been paid out. What will happen #1 because I didnt do anything with my moms will at the time of her death and #2 the outstanding debts? There isnt a lot of money coming to anyone as they didnt have much as well as the fact that he is living off the money for his care. Would appreciate any advice. Should I contact an Elder Attorney before my father passes? If I put my moms will through probate now will that freeze the money my father has in the joint account with my moms name still on it? Thanks!
