Each state has specific laws on executors' responsibilities, along with timetables for them to perform their duties.

Usually they specify that in the will.

You have my condolences on your losses.

Your question is complex because we don't know the background.

Did your parents have a will and name someone else as the executor and you want to have it assigned to you?

Did your parents not have a will, therefore no executor and you need to find out how you can take the role?

Or is there some other situation?

With any of the scenarios, if you need help with an estate you need legal counsel. Most states it is much to complex to manage on your own, even if the parents had little or no money.

If you can't afford your own lawyer, you can seek help through legal aide services. Don't just pick one of them from a phone book (or from online listing). There are a lot of disreputable services out there.

Talk to your state representative or senator. You can find can find who that person is from Google by putting in your city name and the term state senator into the search box. Then make an appointment and go to their office to talk to them about your situation. Services from your state senator are free (paid for by tax dollars). The state senator can give you the information you need to find a reputable legal aide services and help you cut through red tape. Legal aide may be free or on a sliding scale.

Good luck!

See if your parents left a legal will. If not, if they left notes on their person or in their house of who gets what.

Some states allow holographic wills. I'm not sure where you live.
