Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
1. The home was paid for, not mortgage2. My sister-in-law had a will leaving all her property to her 4 daughters.
3. No one else is on the deed besides the mother.
I forgot to mention that my sister-in-law left a hand written letter stating that she wished for her disabled daughter to stay in the family home for at least one year but not to exceed 3 years. Does this info help her situation at all?
Does my niece need an attorney to file the holographic will with the probate court? The letter was not attached to her will, does that matter?
I had to put my credit card number in two different times in order to get your help. Each time it was approved. Will I get a refund on the second charge? I cannot find any place on your website to ask for a refund. Thank you for your help.
