My father died 6 years ago in New Jersey, even though his will is in New York State. There are properties in Louisiana and Florida. My half-sister is executor and me and my half brother split it 3 ways. Now they had a second will but could not find the original that cut me out of the Florida property. They wanted me to sign a release, but my lawyer said not to and that they could even probate
a copy of the second will. It's been six year and they REFUSE to tell me why they won't even Probate, no less sell the land. What could they possibly be planning by not probating? Something just smells bad.
JA: What are the assets in question? Have any documents been drafted?
Customer: Land in Louisiana worth between $200,000 to $300,000 and a house in Florida worth $80,000, which I would give up if they just would probate the damn will and sell the Louisiana land. They pay the taxes on it. Are they just waiting for me to die? I don't get why they won't talk to me.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: That's the story in a nutshell. I want to know if there is a way to get me out of the will somehow?
