How can we know if this lawyer is taking advantage of my Aunt who is an elderly sister of the deceased?: My Aunt died over a 18 months ago and her Estate still isn't closed. We are getting the feeling this lawyer is milking the Estate.

Yvette’s answer: I agree with the comments from colleagues.

We do need more information to provide further guidance. If the inheritance tax has been filed, it will form a part of the probate records at the Register of Wills. The file is public so you could review what has been to date if the Executor is unable to give you an update. Good luck and let us know if you have further information and questions.

With her so heavily medicated with 3 signatures with no notary.present? : My mother n law passed away a few months ago. My wife has one brother who is the issue. Her mother left us the house and her brother received the insurance policy plus other cash in the sum of $30k. My wife and I took care of her in last year of her life and these were her wishs to settle her estate. She went to visit her son for the last time and passed away in his care. 4 days before she died he had Will made up with him as the beneficiary changing everything and had her sign it three different times with wrong spelling on one signature without a notary. He now wants us to sell the house and give him half. In my eyes this whole stinks and need anyone who can help us fight to save our home.

Yvette’s answer: It is important that you obtain probate counsel to assis you in this matter. If your mother-in-law had a prior Will, you want to file it as soon as possible since you believe this other Will is not valid. They may still file it and have to defend. If there was no prior Will and this new one is not valid then the intestate laws would distribute the probate property equally to the children if there is no spouse.

Yvette’s answer: If you are stating that your mother had a Will and you were the only beneficiary then the home belongs to you. You can proceed to have your father evicted if he will not voluntarily leave. Hopefully, there will be an amicable resolution.
