Customer Question

My mother died 6 months ago without a will
JA: OK. The Estate Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: I just received a letter from my brothers lawyer for a waiver of citation renunciation and consent to appointment of administrator
JA: Please give me a bit more information, so we can help you best.
Customer: My brother has lived with my mother his whole life. He is 50.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Estate Lawyer should know?
Customer: the letter also states that a bond be dispensed with and hereby specifically release any claim I might have under bond that may be filed. What does that mean?
JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Estate Lawyer about your situation and connect you two.

Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.

Can you provide me a bit more information? Is this in reference to a New York estate? If not, what state? Also, do have an idea the value of your mom's estate? Do you live in the same state as your brother? How much trust do you have in your brother? Thanks.
