What state are you in?Customer: FloridaJA: What documents or supporting evidence do you have?Customer: The entire mediation agreement of what I gave up that per law belonged to me but again I had no attorney and I was very fearful of my husbands adult childrenJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The probate judge has shown extreme bias and favoritism to attorneys she has a relationship with. She even said right int he hearing that because she knew and worked with one of the attorneys she was granting him his fees. The attorney did not benefit the estate but the judge said in the hearing she would grant him his fees since she has known him and worked with him

I'm the executor and trustees of my mother's estate. She

Hi, I'm the executor and trustees of my mother's estate. She passed 3 months ago. I took good care of her. Moved her in with us 9 years ago four of which she was in a nursing home. Sold her house. I got her budget to be within her means. Opened up a trust. Paid all of her bills. Celebrated all of the holidays with her either at our home or at the nursing home. Started her trust with the sale of her home at 217,000. Nine years later and four years of nursing home care. She still has 204,000. In the mean time i put my middle brother into alcohol treatment and through 3 years he passed on. And my oldest brother has always been bitter. Never came over six cell she moved in, never had her for any holidays, rarely visited the nursing home. The disbursements were made . 25k to him and the balance to me with a no contest test clause in it. I also made 10k dispursements to each grandchild (3). Just recieved a letter from an attorney he is suing me for 400,000. Stating I was abusive in my feduciary responsibilities ect... how can I have been abusive and held her account to 204k from 217k for 9 years. We have retained a local attorney, but I'm just looking for some advise on how to immediately deal with this.and put it to rest

I live in Kentucky. My late husband and I owned our house

I live in Kentucky. My late husband and I owned our house jointly. He left a will where I am the sole beneficiary. The will has been probated and I was named executor and administrator of the estate. I went to the fayette co. property admin office and they told me I need to "write a new deed" for the house. I tried to do that on legalzoom but they said since there is an executor, I cannot use their documents even though I am the executor. So how can I get a new deed written and submitted? Do I need to make an appointment with an attorney? So far I've been able to do everything myself, just filling out paperwork and appearing in court. Thank you.
