Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
I just called my mother and she lives in Michigan and I live in Arizona so it's hard to figure out exactly what it says, but she said that I am the personal representative of my dad's will and my adopted brother, of the address where they lived at the time the will was made out, is the personal representative if something happens to me. I guess the will was actually made out in April of 1982 instead of 2004 like I thought it was. I don't believe it actually mentioned the estate address for the will, but it did mention my brother of that address, because he was a child that lived at that address at the time it was made up. I asked my mother to make a copy of the will and send it to me so I could actually read it and see what it said exactly but it will take a while for me to actually get it. So, I don't know if you can actually give me any answers right now or not. Thank you. Sue
