How Do I Get My Executor Approved From a Probate Court?

Although the probate court is not strictly obligated to do so, it will generally appoint your choice of executor.


When appointing the executor, the court will also look at whether you have selected a non-resident executor as well as the bond requirements. These initial proceedings also include providing notice to heirs and creditors, resolving challenges to the last will, obtaining a federal identification number, and opening a checking account in the estate’s name.
