My father in law has died. One of his grandchildren got

My father in law has died. One of his grandchildren got cousins to in sign for him to be administrator of the estate. He filed an he was granted it. I, an others had our lawyer to do what he had to do to stop him. He claimed there wasn't a will but there is, he claimed no I strange but there is. He knew about both. Since filing an our lawyer said he stopped it, the estate has receive d the insurance an the bank account number ect. So the grandson who was appointed guardian less then a year before the death still gets the I formation. How can that be. Are lawyer has the will showing who is the administrator but says that means nothing that majority rules an he doesn't have majority. From what I understand since most was to go to my husband who is deceased. It is my underling it all goes into the estate of my father in law. He has one son alive an he should get 1/3, then there is me o 1/3 comes to my family. Then there is one other son who also died nut his family gets 1/3. Now if I understand correctly, I receive 50%of my third the other 50% goes to my one equally. My inter in law has the same. Now the grandson wants to include 2 of the great grand children's college 529 accounts that were set up by there great grandfather into the estate. He also gave the farm to the same 2 great grand children 4 yrs ago. He had lived with their father his grandson an mother an the great grand children did a lot for him. They helped take care of him. He was I believe 98 when he died this year. He wanted the farm to stay in the family an be put back into a working farm an they have well their dad has. The grandson who was guardian an wants to be administrator says the farm is part of the estate. He was declared senile about a year ago when the court appointed a guardian. He went down hill fast when is youngest son died of cancer about 3 yrs ago and his 2nd olest on died 2 yrs ago. Then his daughter in law died and he got bad. After his one son died he got better an was doing ok. He was living with the grandson most of the time. He would get mad when they would tell him he couldn't do something an go to his house an the great grand children would check on him an bring him back for meal then he would stay. This was for 14 yrs. Just prior to him being declared senile they had got him in an assisted living facility. It was close so they could go by an see him. One of the 4 did about every day. The 2 great grandkids an the grandson an the granddaughter in law. Now can they force the farm and 2 529 to be part of the estate? Can the grandson be the administrator for the estate without majority. Thank youLonnia Shewmaker ***@******.***How do we find a good estate an probate lawyer in our area southern Indiana, by Louisville, KY.

I have a question regarding recent small claims hearing and

Hi, I have a question regarding recent small claims hearing and would like advice on the next step in the process.We filed a small claims suit against a seller who defaulted on a UTAH real estate transaction and we are entitled to $10,000 in liquidated damages per the contract.The Defendants did not appear at the hearing but rather sent their realtor to represent them. At the end of the hearing the Judge stated, "at this time I'm leaning towards a judgment of $10,000 for the Plaintiffs" - but he did not issue a formal judgment. He scheduled a date in October for the two parties to appear for a ruling. He mentioned the two parties get together to solve case prior to this date or Defendant will have a settlement/judgment. We (Plaintiffs, our realtor, and broker) are concerned that the Defendants' realtor did not quite know what was going and will not convey the proceeding with his client (Defendants). Our broker offered to email the Defendants' realtor to clarify the course of events with him in the hope of him talking to his client (Defendants) for them to understand that a judgment will be made if this is not solved prior to the ruling date. We have told him to wait for our direction on this letter/email.Questions:As Plaintiffs should we have our broker reach out to Defendants/Defendants' realtor to explain what occurred and make them aware that the Judge is leaning towards a $10,000 judgment?Do we do nothing until the October ruling appearance date?Can Defendants show up on ruling date with a lawyer and/or others and present new information to the Judge for review and consideration?Can the Defendants request a new hearing?Thank you for your time and expertise.
