My sister is executor of my aunt's will, and is refusing to

Customer Question

My sister is executor of my aunt's will, and is refusing to give my son his money. It's been 9 years.
JA: OK. The Estate Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: No
JA: Please tell me everything you can about this issue so the Estate Lawyer can help you best. Please give me a bit more information, so we can help you best.
Customer: She was steward of an account my aunt established for my son. She was getting all the updates on the account, refusing to pass those along to my son. She told our investment person "I'd rather see it got to the state than him get a penny of it". He was a child when my aunt died, never did anything to get that attitude. There is also land left to my kids and my sister has refused to to file for it as only the executor can. She said that will never do it because she doesn't want my kids to get it. Enough is enough.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Estate Lawyer should know?
Customer: Obviously, she's not performing her duties as executor and needs to be legally forced to perform, or be removed.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Estate Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
