Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Hello. My name is***** am an attorney. I will review your question. I may need to clarify facts first. I will answer & we can discuss issues.
Did you Dad have a Will? If so, was there a petition to probate? Is there an estate proceeding?
If you dad had a trust, then some moneys would be in the trust; and maybe some moneys were not in the trust. If there was no will, then an estate representative would be appointed. If that would be you, you would be able to sue your sister for the return of the money. If your sister is the trustee, then you would be able to sue your sister for the return of the money. If she is the personal representative of the estate, then you can petition the court to remove her for breach of fiduciary duty and have her turnover the money.
