My sister passed away Nov 2, 2011, she was unmarried without any children. I am her beneficiary on everything, all of her accounts, she was still working, in fact she passed away @ work, i am her only beneficiary on her job. she had one account @ her credit union that she apparently never listed a Pod or beneficiary. The banker their said that I need to go to the court and petition to be named executor of her estate, and that there was no need to go through the probate process, then come back to them and they will release her funds. I know this was just an over sight on her part. My question is how do you file a petition. I have already paid for her funeral and her outstanding bills.
