I am one of eight siblings. The will states that father's estate

Customer Question

I am one of eight siblings. The will states that father's estate be divided equally between us. Our oldest sister is executrix and is holding approx $280,000 and refuses to distribute any funds until the final property sells. I need the funds now badly; is she allowed to withhold these funds from us?

Good afternoon Vernon. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you. Can you provide me a bit more information? How long ago did the decedent die? Did the will provide that the properties had to be sold (rather than simply distributed in undivided interests)? Thanks.
