Its been over 3 years since my mother died. Is it too late

Customer Question

its been over 3 years since my mother died. Is it too late to challange her suposed will [not in her writing or properly witnessed etc...] and there was no probate process or anything of that nature as one of my sisters put herself in control of EVERYTHING including 2 joint bank accounts of my mothers and myself? If I cant challange the illegal peice of paper my sister calls a will can I still take proper mesures of illegal handeling of my joint accounts???

Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.
You may also be offered a phone call, but those don’t come from me and are offered by the website and you are under no obligation to accept.

If there was no probate case filed, how was sister able to be put in control of financial accounts held by the bank?


Were you on the joint accounts with mother solely...just you and her?


Were there other assets or just the two bank accounts?
