Good morning. Was he executor of the will? Do you know if you were left anything in the will?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
my brother got 25% of the will. I don't know if he was the executor of the will. I can't find out anything about this. my brother won't cooperate with me and talk about the will. my mother would have left me something
Expert:  CrimDefense replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for the additional information. Someone had to handle the will and if you were named, you would have been contacted. However, if your brother was involved and there was wrongdoing, you could go after him civilly and there could be grounds for criminal charges by the State, if there was fraud. You should first start and search the records at the court house in the county where she passed, to see when probate was opened and started and who the attorney of record is or the person who handled the will. You can then reach out to them and advise them of the situation, so you know what you are entitled to. It does not make any senses for your brother to withhold information from you, if he received 25% and had nothing else to gain, so it is odd.
