My mother died in February, single with no other children. Someone passed along a copy of her will to me and I have reason to believe that undue influence from the executor was involved, so an attorney filed a caveat in the county she died in (NJ) and two in counties that the executor lives/lived in (FL.)
The executor did try to probate the will in FL, and claimed the caveat was baseless, but it stands. My attorney offered a settlement to the executor in March, and we have yet to hear back.
Should I be concerned that the will could have been probated in another county?
I don't know if the mortgages and taxes have been paid on my mother's property, can I find out and what can be done if they haven't?
I was not notified and I know the executor has stolen property, can I prosecute?
