Just a slight correction: the link provided is to the Reasons for Judgment written by the Judge, not to the transcript of the hearing.

My father remarried and recently passed away. In his will he indicated that I’m to inherit all money left in his bank account. If he had a joint bank account with his wife and she withdrew all his money can I take her to court and sue?

Hi Jennifer,

The joint account with his wife would automatically rollover to her. You would probably not be able to challenge it. In fact if he made you the beneficiary of his estate and did not make any provisions for the wife, she could challenge the distribution and seek dependent relief – Your inheritance could possibly be delayed until her death.

Keep in mind that these are legal issues and you will get a more sound and reliable response from a lawyer.
