Customer Question

Hello, my father passed 1 week ago. I know he had a will, as I retrieved it for him from his file cabinet (I'm his son) a few weeks before he passed. My step mother and I have a very contentious relationship (as did my father with her), and I have doubts about her doing the right thing.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I want to be sure she carries out his final wishes, but she is in posession of all of his papers. How can I "involve" myself to get the ball rolling in the right direction?
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Estate Lawyers generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
