My grandmother became ill several years ago and my sister and

Resolved Question:

My grandmother became ill several years ago and my sister and I were BOTH supposed to share decisions regarding her health care and ultimately the division of her belongings. However, my mother paid for my sister to fly down to Texas where SHE placed my grandmother in a low cost nursing home alone and took everything my grandmother had left for herself. Both my mom and sister did not inform me until AFTER my sister returned. According to them, my grandmother left us nothing (??), which I sincerely XXXXX XXXXX have been very emotionally affected since I was not even able to tell my grandmother I love her or help at all before she died alone in that nursing home (she fell and broke her hip and passed within one month). I would have brought her to my home to care for her. I was a nurse at the time and was quite willing and able, but was never even informed. And I am almost positive she had life insurance. What can I do to be sure? And can I pursue this family betrayal? Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX

Hello and thank you for the question. I am sorry to read of this dilemma.
Do you have access to her financial papers?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

I don't have access to any financial papers, my sister removed everything from her residence when she went there. I never even got to see them.

Expert:  Infolawyer replied 1 year ago.
You have a few options. You may contact large insurers directly in writing and inquire about a policy. You may also demand she produce those documents. You may check with the court if any will or other instrument filed. You may also have a lawyer press her and motion the court to compel such disclosure and accounting. Is that clear and would you like a lawyer directory to help with that last option?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX would like a directory of lawyers to help with disclosing to see if there was anything my grandmother wanted me to have.
