Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
ThomasMcJD, you've been patient, ty. With little to no money to work with against my sister & brother, my means to an has been directed towards getting someone in trouble. Meaning that if I could report somebody, implicate someone, the courts would be obligated to open this up, meaning the estate would eventually have to be settled. I've been looking for ways to do that. My mom had an estate atty in Fl. whom she also named in her will to settle the estate, nothing ever came of it...last I heard he just "quit" , walked away. Can he do that? Isn't he liable for reporting things? Completing things according to mom's estate? He held her original will, my sister got it, I don't know the particular's. Can he be reported to DA also.?
