My dad passed away in Feb of '09. As stated at the top of the will, it is a simple and straightforward will i.e. some Roth accts and some stock for me and my two sisters and 10,000.00 specified for each grandchild in the form of CDs. Apparently, the CD values have now decreased so the will is not being dispersed. But what if they never recover their 10,000.00 value? Surely the will must be dispersed at some point. The atty's office has never been cooperative but rather evasive, rude and inconsistent in their replies.
We finally had to determine merely the status of the will a couple of months ago by calling the Surrogate court ourselves several times and the executrix (my older sister) had to file some docs herself. The will has finally gone through probate.
