The people who are suing me are my stepfather's biological children they were nowhere in the picture and now that both parents are gone they want to claim everything and want me to return everything that was left to me they want it put in the Family Trust
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I wish I could afford to call you so this is the only way that I can get in contact with you I just don't have that kind of money
Estate Lawyer: Olivia Kent, Attorney replied 5 months ago

Left to you as in in a will? And what exactly are they suing you for - what cause of action? Is there an actual court case or are they threatening you?

Right now what I've received is a threatening letter from their attorney my mother had written in her will that I was to receive certain things and now the other kids want it all back to put in the trust or in the Family Trust but I have documents I just don't know how to send them to you
Estate Lawyer: Olivia Kent, Attorney replied 5 months ago

You don't need to send them to me... you just need to tell me your situation. So there's a will saying that you're entitled to X but the other kids are saying they want X put back in the trust... well, if X was left to you - X is yours!

What is this Wayne's up to be a court matter I need somebody to represent me so I can obtain what's rightfully mine
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
In my mother's Direct advantage it states that whoever takes care of her on living basis is to receive $2,500 a month and right now I mean after she passed it was up to $140,000 the house has been sold for 250 so wouldn't they have to pay me off first as a debt or how does that work

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I've been trying to find an attorney or at least get some advice to see where I stand on the situation but my problem is I'm on a very limited income and I just I can't afford an attorney so I don't know what to do I've used all my resources to try to get some help but in this I have a substantial amount of cash up front nobody will help me so I thought maybe I could at least get some advice to see if these kids can sue me I don't see how they can because I had power of attorney it's in the will and I didn't remove anything from that house that mother didn't request it to go do you have any advice whatsoever
Estate Lawyer: Olivia Kent, Attorney replied 5 months ago
What I can tell you is that if the will left you certain assets those assets are yours. You don’t have to fight with anyone if those assets were left to you and you have them.
