What happens if an executor doesn't file a will with the court?

An executor of an estate must generally step in and file an individual's will with the county probate court when a testator dies. An executor only has a set number of days to do this after a testator's death. The decedent's personal representative may face both civil and criminal penalties if they fail to do this in a timely fashion.

One of the court's first responsibilities is validating a decedent's will.
