What if he did not file with the court what can i do, my beother will not call me
Estate Lawyer: RayAnswers, Attorney replied 3 years ago
You can write the judge and seek to remove him.This is a breach of his fiduciary duties and he is subject to removal by the judge if you complain here.
By writing the judge you can ask for a hearing where you can testify about his failure to communicate and this breach of fiduciary duties.You have rights here to do so and seek some answers and court orders in all of this.
Thanks again.
