Yes my older brother filed probate.
He filed the papers a few weeks later he received paperwork from the court stating that he was executor. Thats all I know.
One last question...Does the executor have the right to kick me out of the only home I lived in for over 30 years (my mothers home)? Or does he have to go through the court to have me evicted or removed from the house. He has already changed the locks on the house.
Since my brother changed the locks and has the keys am I allowed to enter the house without him? I just don't want my brother having me arrested for breaking into my home.
I forgot to mention...I have a problem with alcohol so I went to a 14 day detox. When I got out today, I went home and I was locked out. My brother changed the locks while I was in detox.
