Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for the question. I am sorry to read of this dilemma.
There is a problem where there are accusations of improper conduct, fraud, and duress.
even with that cloud, one should step aside from acting in a fiduciary capacity to the estate and assets
Is that acceptable?
OK so you think a judge would agree? The lawyer acting for her "gave permission" to the lawyer drafting and witnessing both the transfers and the will to release a copy of the will to me after many unsuccessful attempts. Why would lawyer #1 ask lawyer #2 for permission, and why would lawyer #2 give permission? and after all this time 20 months from date of death still be refusing access to the documents?
I do indeed
there should not be permission needed or asked for
Documents should have long ago been provided
without such unreasonable delay!
I wish you the best.
