MF community -- I was in the brokerage ‘bis for 20 yrs, but have lost my memory, lame here, but looking for some confirmation.
i. A spouse has enough earned income to easily contribute 5k to a ROTH IRA. Can the other spouse, no earned income, open a spousal ROTH IRA and also contribute 5k?
ii. If an IRA is opened with a deadline closing in, say 4-15 with a local bank, can the funds be transferred to a new Roth IRA with a new custodian, 1-2 mo ? idea here is one is simple and needs no research, the 2nd needs some time for research, it is going to be a custodian that accepts non- conventional, but legal investments, maybe royalty interests on a friend’s discovery.
iii. Anyone know a KNBOW custodian that accepts non-conventional? Common names don’t, not worth the hassle, legal risks.
Raymond James, ? maybe>?

Thanks for any insights.
