Hello my name isXXXXX received your response however, I am not quite clear of your response. My question is for the family lawyer to submit the documents to a board of directors is this part of the legal process to release part of the funds? Does the lawyer need approval from the board of directors to release part of the money owed to her.
Your quick response is greatly appreciated
Hello again. This is Ron in your response I just received you stated that unless it is specifically stated in the will there is no need to submit documents to a board of directors. Does this situation seem unusual to you that the family lawyer is doing this process. Correct me that when a family lawyer is administering the legal process of a will he must follow every step of that including if it states to present to a board of directors then he has to follow that. Please provide me with a simple answer to this question otherwise I am thinking there is something wrong with this process I hope not.
Your cooperation will be greatly appreciated.
