Customer Question

My sister-in-law was Power of Attorney for my Father-in-law. My Father-in-law passed 11/19/2015.
1. When was the Power of Attonery no longer in effect?
My husband, step-son of the Deceased, has requested, on 2 diferent occasions, the Power of Attorney (my husband's sister) to produce documentation of all Financial transactions of the Deceased's monies BEFORE the Deceased died. The Power of Attorney has not produced ANY documentation to my husband.
2. What steps does my husband need to take to get this documentation? He feels uncomfortable regarding his sister's honesty while being Power of Attorney for his Step-dad's monies.
3. Can a Will be read without all parties, listed in the Will, being present?
