Ask an Estate Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Unfortunately my mom had no assets and no life insurance. No, I did not receive anything in writing. My mom had no estate therefore no probate case was filed. Thank you for your help. I figure there is nothing I can do. I should have just paid my portion and let the funeral home go after my brother for his share. I did something that I thought was the right thing to do, and my brother does this. I appreciate your time on this. Thank you, Kim
I am sorry that I don’t have better news, but please understand that I do have an ethical and professional obligation to provide customers with legally correct answers, even when an answer is not favorable to the customer.
Thank you very much for your help. Kim
