Section 3A:37-6 - Eviction from jointure

If a widow be lawfully expelled or evicted from her jointure, or from any part thereof, without fraud, by lawful entry or action, she shall be endowed of such much of the residue of her husband's real estate whereof she would have been endowed but for the jointure, as shall equal in amount or extent the real estate from which she is so expelled or evicted.

A successor personal representative has the same power and duty as the original personal representative to complete the administration and distribution of the estate, as expeditiously as possible, but he shall not exercise any power expressly made personal to the executor named in the will.
