My mom did not have a living will , her assets are over in Montana. How difficult is it if my mom did not have a will unfortunately cancer took my mom too fast. How much does it cost to get the process started for a probate lawyer ? Do I need to go too Montana also ? I appreciate all the answers I am getting cause I have no clue how too go about this whole process between my brothers and sisters, sorry I needed to be more thorough about everything . I just went through a process of monies being split up between the six of us that came from my moms deceased brother that was left too my mom and things were not right, the way everything was set up seems as though. Thanks for all the advice to all good day.Can money be disbursed ? If my moms assets have not went through probate yet ?
