Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Thank you for your condolence and response. I should have been more clear. We were promised a 14k gift from mom in December (for sons tuition). She passed last week. My share of the estate will be in hundreds of thousands but not distributed in time for tuition due date I don't want to take out a school loan. Sister executor said she would just send 14k gifts to me and each of the 3 other kids named in the will out of moms bank account. is that permitted. If not can she just advance me 14k out of the bank account to of course be deducted at time entire distributions made.
