What are the options for the beneficiary of a Will where the Executor has not distributed the assets of the estate as per the Will and is refusing to say why?

Has the will been petitioned with the court for probate?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
yes probate has issued and some assets have been distributed but some have not and the executor is refusing to engage on this
Expert:  Attorney2020 replied 2 years ago.
File a motion to the court compelling cooperation from the executor. This should generate some cooperation as it would subject the executor to sanctions if it refuses to engage in properly administering the will pursuant to the terms thereof. Perhaps sending a letter to the executor informing it of your intentions could resolve this issue. I hope that helped. Please ask any follow-up questions.
