My mother died last year in Toronto, Canada and had no will.

Customer Question
She has a bank account...
My mother died last year in Toronto, Canada and had no will. She has a bank account in Malta with around €10,000.00 in it. There are six siblings , one of which lives in Malta. We are trying to have the bank release these funds.The rest, five of us , all live in Toronto. We have already sent papers authorizing the brother living in Malta to distribute the funds . However the bank has requested a letter signed by a lawyer confirming that there in fact is no probate due to lack of will. Would you be able to help us?

I am sorry for your loss.

The lawyers on this site cannot act for you. We can only provide legal information online.

If it would help I can suggest how best to find a lawyer in Toronto.

If that won't be helpful please ask the site for a refund.

Thanks
