    Lets separate your question into two parts. First ther is the issue of your mother's estate. If your mother gave your sister a power of attorney while she was alive, it could only be used by your sister during your mother's lifetime. the power ends with her death. If she was appointed personal representative of your mother's estate, then any information about assets that were probated is public and you can get that from the clerk of court. Possibly at their website. With respect to...

    If the house can be paid off from his funds you should be able to avoid a sale "from under you" by contacting the lender.

    If you did not sign the loan note you are not responsible for the debt. His estae is responsible for the debt and any assets of the estate must be used to pay off creditors. If there are no assets, then the creditors are out of luck. Good luck!

  7. How can I get access to the Guardianship Account left by my mother for me before she died?

    You need to get the documents filed with the court regarding the handling of any money left for you. It is possible that you were entitled to everything already. But it is also possible that your mother left your aunt as trustee of a trust left for you that continues well into the future. Your aunt should provide this to you. If she doesn't, as beneficiary, you have a right to know the terms of the trust with respect to you. The guardianship papers can be obtained from the Queens county...

    Your credit cannot be affected by your role as an administrator(personal representative of your father's estate). If you never assumed the mortgage, and never transferred the property to your names you cannot be personally affected by the foreclosure. The notices should be coming to you as administrator and your responsibility it is to handle all creditors of the estate. If the estate has assets the assets need to be used to pay off creditors such as the mortgage. Your attorney for his...

    Since there is no will, if the property was in your parents name and not your sister's(which seems to be the case since she needs you to sign a deed) then it would pass to you and your sister through the intestate probate process. DO NOT SIGN OVER THE HOUSE. You do not own it yet. You need an attorney to open an estate, appoint a personal representative, and distribute the property which possibly means selling it so you and your sister can go your own ways. If you need any further...

    The short answer is yes. This is a very common occurrence in wrongful death and malpractice situations. You need to contact an attorney to handle the lawsuit and an attorney to handle the probate matter. Often, this is done by one law firm. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. I am local to Fort Lauderdale. good Luck
