Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

What you would need to do is go to the probate proceeding and context the validity of the will. You should try to find if your mother created any other wills prior to the version that your sister has. I would highly suggest finding a local probate attorney in your area to help you because the probate process is extremely complicated and it sounds like there might be large sums of money involved.

While this will incur more expenses, the benefit that you stand to gain will outweigh the costs. You can search for a probate attorney in your area by using avvo.com.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
