My Nana passed on March 17,2016. She left all three grandchildren a bond for $1500.00 each. They got theirs but my grandfather saying I can't have all of it at once. What can I do? Please I am alone and my name and my dead Nana's name is on it , so I believe by law I should get it,or what?
If you have done all you can do without success-hire an attorney to write a letter demanding release of bond.
The answer given does not imply that an attorney-client relationship has been established and your best course of action is to have legal representation in this matter.
If the bond was jointly owned as joint tenants, then by law, you do own it. But my advice is never just legal advice apart from human life, wisdom and relationships. If your grandfather already gave out the other two bonds, but expressed concern about you getting yours all at once, I advise you to listen to his concerns. I suspect he has a reason to feel that way. Maybe you know what that is but didn't include it in your question. Maybe he cares for you. Maybe you can benefit from his counsel, if you're willing, and yet still get the full benefit of the funds over an agreed time. Maybe you can have both good things in the end; a good relationship with a caring grandfather and the benefit of $1,500 of unearned dollars. Don't make the common mistake of asking what is fair. That question is too quickly asked and always based on selfishness. Ask instead what is best. Don't be in a hurry. Stop. Listen. Learn and grow.
