Customer Question
My nephews grandparents promised...

My nephews grandparents promised him that he was to get his grandfathers and great grand fathers war medals, but after both the grand parents died the two aunties have stopped him having them, is ther any way he can claim these medals, my nephews parents also heard the grand mother tell thier son

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

South Australia

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have been taken so far?

My sister went to the grandparents house and they picked up the medals , but the aunties had the police go back and claim them and accused him of stealing, but have now dropped the case

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

In the grand mothers will her son was cut out completely, but was told if he returned the medals he would get his third, and that is being finalized now
