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.
It is unclear why you did not receive notice of the estate proceeding at an earlier date. Apparently, you are not the executor of your husband's will. It sounds like his brother was but it is unclear. It is also unclear how a trust was formed if no trust terms were listed in the wills. Possibly, you would want to speak on the phone to clarify the facts and discuss the issues. We can arrange it. There is an additional cost. But it could be easier to get to the bottom of this.
Okay. Good luck.
