My fathers estate was settled months ago. He left his estate, in a Trust, to me. He did not include my sister in his Will. She had not been in touch with him for many years, did drugs, is a felon, etc. My fathers attorney handled the will back in 2008. Now, my sister is requesting that the estate go to probate, stating there in fact was NO will, and wants independent administration. I was always with the understanding that a Trust was safe, and a persons wishes would be upheld. How could an already settled estate, where the assets were already transferred, go to probate? At this point, letters of administration were requested but the court date has not yet happened. My father had no property, just investments.
