Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am an attorney.
Can you please clarify for me exactly what paperwork you need and what you are trying to do?
So what is your relation to the deceased. Are you a spouse? How do you know that you were named in the will as the sole owner of the property? Do you have a copy?
Ok thanks for that info.
In Indiana you don't need file probate in court if there is a will that has a total assets of under $50,000. So if that is the case, the person designated in the will as executor can distribute the property legally without going to court. Then they simply file something with the court to let them know.
If it is over 50k in value, then there will be a probate proceeding, where the executor will go to court and the property will be distributed.
It is correct that you will have to have the daughters sign something, just saying that they don't contest it. If they do contest it, then you all have to go to court before a judge and determine if the will is valid.
Either way, you need to get in touch with the executor and have them distribute the property.
Let me know if you have any questions about this.
