I am probating my father's estate and I'm concerned that my nephew's incarceration will be an obstacle in distribution of assets and closing the estate. The nephew is an heir due to the death of his father, my brother.
Your attorney can assist with this but basically, if he has any restitution, that will be paid out of his share. From there, all you have to do is send him a check. It would be nice however, if you sent him a letter or called him to ask if he wants to make alternate arrangements such has giving it to an agent under power of attorney or something else. Again, your attorney can assist with discussing options here.
The restitution issue may prevent him from receiving the view of the inheritinance, but he still receive the remainder of his full amount, if you follow the Notice rules.
An Attorney consultation ~ with candor and confidentiality ~ can result in specific legal advice about your situation (and its documents) based on the statutes and case law. Why? Because this e-response is for information but is not construed "legal advice" for any particular case or client, just an explanation in response to what you posted. So this response creates NEITHER an Attorney-Client relationship NOR an Attorney-Client privilege ~ because everything is public, for all to see. For specific advice about your particular concerns or situation, consult an Attorney as a Fiduciary to you, with that 1-way Duty to you. This e-response is neither an advertisement nor a solicitation.
