Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
1. I AM looking for a low cost or Pro Bono attorney.
2. I am looking for some way to appeal the decisions that were already made during the hearing they had that I was not notified of.
3. I just need to slow things down before I wind up in jail or with huge settlements ($100,000 plus).
It was hearing regarding financial matters and removing me as trustee from the estate. The removal hurt because we haven't seen my sister in 20 years (she lives in California) and I was the one that took care of my parents in their final years. My sisiter is doing everything via her attorney here in Florida who is using phone calls and emails to communicate with her. He has never seen her either.
One last thing. I received a notice of intent from my sisiter's attorney to file a subpoena requesting all of my financial records from my bank all the way back to 2006. I have 15 days to object to the filing of the subpoena. Of course, I DO object. Do I have to say anything else other than "I object to this notice" or do I have to say why and add some more information?
Okay, but no subpoena has been issued. This was a notification of intent to file for the subpoena unless someone objects to the filing. Does that still need the quash motion? Or can I just object to the intent to file?
What do I do first? Do I file with the court and then mail the dated copy from the court back to my sisiter's attorney? What, then, do I do with the Certificate Of Service? Do I take that back to the courthouse and submit that? Do I send that Certificate of Service to the other attorney?
Okay.....do I need to take all copies to the courthouse so they can stamp them all before I mail them out? I want to do this right.
Thank you so much, Ely. It's just down the street, so I am going to take them over to the Clerk of Court for stamping so that there's no chance of a foulup. I do appreciate the advice. I feel like I'm not all alone anymore. That's a huge thing for me......THANKS!
